INDUSTRY World Cinema


North America Premiere

Following the film, AFI Festivals Director of Programming Sarah Harris leads a conversation between filmmakers Mickey Down, Konrad Kay and David P. Davis and actors Myha’la Herrold and Marisa Abela.

In the latest series from HBO, an ambitious group of graduates compete for a permanent role at Piedmont, a top London bank. Harper, the sole American, with a mysterious past, navigates privilege and egos in this world of international finance, determined to prove herself as the best hire. Boundaries blur and rankings intensify within the group as they are immersed into a company culture driven by success at all costs. AFI FEST is honored to host the North American premiere of the first four episodes of this electric ensemble-drama.
