Lionel Shriver

Finance and Economics

A 30 min Artsnight film for BBC Two, 2016
BBC Scotland

To coincide with the release of Lionel Shriver's novel The Mandibles, this documentary saw the writer explore how arts and culture have reflected the worlds of finance and economics in the wake of the 2008 financial crash. Featuring interviews with Billions' Damien Lewis, novelist John Lanchester, as well as a segment presented by Lucy Prebble, the playwright behind Enron, the film climaxed with an interview between Lionel and a puppet version of the late twentieth century economist Hyman Minsky, who had recently featured in Terry Jones' documentary Boom Bust Boom.
