Babelgum Presents: Floored


When financial disasters like yesterday’s market crash happen, we always feel frustrated by how little we know about what really goes down on the trading floor. Enter: Floored , James Allen Smith’s new documentary which takes you behind-the-scenes of Chicago’s futures exchanges. Home to some of the biggest “pits” in the world, the Chicago market is the kind of place where gambling your family’s mortgage or biting another trader on the nose is all in a day’s work.

Check out a trailer courtesy of our friends at Babelgum after the jump; starting on Monday, they’ll distribute the film as an eight-part series, with new content available online and on the Babelgum mobile platforms each day.
