And now, with the help of professional economists, he organizes the “Debt Fete.” Vincent Glenn is a principled film director whose activism is expressed in documentaries devoted to international economics and finances.

His films include “Davos, Porto Alegre et autres” (2002), “Pas assez de volume” (“Not Producing Enough,” about the WTO, 2003) and “Indices” (“Clues” about fetishizing the GNP, 2010).
