, makes its world premiere at The Sundance Film Festival this month. The just-released trailer shows the project continues in the spirit of exploring “debt” through various human elements, in society, and throughout history. Also titled Payback
, the film is directed by Jennifer Baichwal (Manufactured Landscapes
) and produced by the National Film Board of Canada. Payback
