Ireland, Inc 2.0 [6/6]

Released in 2018Running Time: 3:01Filmed in

The IMF sent Steve Dorst to Ireland to tell this story. Steve produced, directed, shot, wrote and edited. When the Irish Miracle overheated in 2008, a property bubble and banking crisis provoked a severe economic downturn. In part because of regional dynamics and the Great Recession, Ireland’s response was insufficient, and the decline persisted. In late 2010, a troika of institutions responded: the European Commission, the European Central Bank, and the IMF. Despite growing pains, the troika succeeded in stabilizing Ireland’s banks and helping the economy bounce back.

Partners in Progress

Released in 2017Running Time: 6:30Filmed in , ,

Policymakers from Ireland, Vietnam, and Colombia speak about their journeys to overcome financial difficulties and build stronger economies, and how the International Monetary Fund was able to help. One of many countries hit by the global financial crisis, Ireland faced a major banking crisis that caused mass unemployment and systemic housing foreclosures. Vietnam embarked on major reforms to open up its economy to trade and investment, as it sought to fulfill its ambition to become the latest Asian tiger. Colombia, for its part, required more revenue to weather an historic shock and move forward with the country’s historic peace agreement after 50 years of civil war.  The IMF sent filmmaker Steve Dorst to these three countries, and Steve served as director/shooter/editor/writer/producer.

IMF: Never Refuse the Call

Released in 2017Running Time: 2:38Filmed in , ,

Economic hardship can strike anywhere. Before World War II, countries rarely sought outside advice on monetary and fiscal policy. But as the global economy zigs and zags, who do countries turn to? The IMF never refuses the call. In 2017, more than 180 countries worked closely with the IMF on issues important to them.
