COLLECTIVE follows a heroic team of journalists as they uncover shocking, widespread corruption. After a deadly fire at a nightclub, the mysterious death of the owner of a powerful pharmaceutical firm, and the quiet resignation of a health minister—seemingly unrelated events, all within weeks of each other—the team of intrepid reporters exposes a much larger, much more explosive political scandal. COLLECTIVE is a fast-paced, real-time detective story about truth, accountability, and the value of an independent press in partisan times.

Hands down, the closest thing we saw at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival to a full-on masterpiece. ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

Every now and then a documentary doesn’t just open your eyes but tears you apart. An explosive observational documentary about unfathomable corruption. THIS IS TRULY A DOCUMENTARY FOR OUR TIMES.
