This film presents the fascinating life and work of the late Mark Lombardi, an artist who translated information surrounding complex contemporary power structures into intricate, map-like drawings. Lombardi created works from an enormous archive of collected information that revealed disturbing facts about various economic and political affairs, conspiracies and crimes. His work entitled BCCI-ICIC & FAB, 1972-91 was examined by the FBI at the Whitney Museum in New York following the attacks of 9/11, as it relayed information about the US banking system’s connection to global terror networks.
