FLOORED
Playing August 18th at 7pm*

*Special Q&A with director James Allen Smith, Andrew McAllister, Stefan Scott Nelson, G.B. Young, Andrew Poandl

"There's an elegiac poignancy in James Allen Smith's "Floored," a documentary about the changing face of the Chicago futures exchanges." - New York Times

A world that's more riot than profession, the trading floors of Chicago are a place where gambling your family's mortgage is all in a day's work. Now, when markets are unhinged, FLOORED offers a unique window to this lesser-known world of finance. Traders may not have degrees, but they've got guts, and penchant for excess. But like many aspects of our economy, technology is changing their business, and these eccentric pit denizens aren't the type to take kindly to new tricks.

Computerized trading may take the emotion out of the job, but it may also take these old-timers out- they are dinosaurs in a young man's game.

At a time when millions have lost fortunes in the fickle stock market and fear abounds about the faltering financial system, FLOORED is a gripping, honest look behind the curtain of the trading floor that few have ever seen.
