    Synopsis

    Tying together themes of accountability, greed and hope, and set against the backdrop of a financial transaction between an American hedge fund and the Peruvian government, Oliver’s Deal tells the stories of three people from vastly different walks of life who are forced to compromise themselves to get what they want.

    Director's notes

     Though I believe that humankind has benefited from increasing global interdependence, I find that the term “globalization” is occasionally used by the wealthy and powerful to lend an aura of virtue to modern-day imperialism.

    First and foremost, this film examines the human condition: ordinary people and the way they respond to unforeseen circumstances. I have chosen to portray individuals from remarkably different backgrounds in the context of an international financial deal involving Peru. This story is based off of both contemporary and historical events which make it both timely and poignant.

    My wife is from Peru, and we live in Lima. I have had the opportunity to discover many of Peru’s cultural treasures from a local perspective. It is a magnificent country with a unique history and warm people. But like other developing nations, it is fertile land for corruption and economic exploitation. This story aims to present, in a balanced, realistic, and authentic manner, the frequently invisible effects of our various initiatives.
