The Informant Film Trailer!
Overview

In 1996 Archer Daniels Midland was neck deep in one of the largest corporate crimes in history. When Mark Whitacre, a rising star at the agri-business giant, turned FBI whistle blower, he brought down top ADM execs, but also exposed his own crime: skimming millions from his employer. In their 2009 film "The Informant!" acclaimed director Steven Soderbergh and actor Matt Damon have created a dark comedy of corporate greed and personal foibles. It carries audiences on a roller coaster-ride exploration of big money and bad ethics at a major multinational corporation. This web site - brought to you by CorpWatch and Crocodyl.org - fills in the real events and people behind "The Informant!". By taking a ride through ADM's past and present, you'll gain insights into the vast underbelly of shady practices that corporations don't want you to see.
