Gabriela Sperl

New Wirecard scandal documentary heads to Sky

German filmmaker Gabriela Sperl is developing the film alongside producer SFFP, which tracks the rise and fall of the financial payments firm Wirecard.

Once regarded as the posterchild for German tech innovation, the firm collapsed in June 2020 after it was revealed that €1.9 billion was missing from its accounts.

The documentary spells out the international web of lies, cover ups and money laundering that led to the swindle.

Sperl has exclusive access to those closest to the scandal, including several informants.
