PLAYING GOD

Expected to Attend: Director Karin Jurschick, film subject Ken Feinberg

US PREMIERE To reckon with the aftermath of 9/11, the US Congress set up a special fund to compensate victims of national disasters, and called upon Ken Feinberg to dispassionately assess claims. Decades before, the compensation specialist had determined damages for Agent Orange-exposed Vietnam vets. Later, he oversaw compensation for the victims of Deepwater Horizon, Sandy Hook, the Boston Marathon bombing and the 2008 bank crisis. In this candid, complex portrait, director Karin Jurschick reveals the man who puts a dollar value on human lives.
