The movie is directed by Steven Soderbergh and is based on the true story of “the U.S. government going after an agri-business giant with a price-fixing accusation, based on the evidence submitted by their witness, vice president turned informant Mark Whitacre (imdb.com).”
Mark is being played by Matt Damon and his wife Ginger Whitacre is portrayed by Melanie Lynskey.
Over the past year, I have been able to connect with Mark and become his personal photographer. I have immensely enjoyed getting to know Mark and Ginger and learn from their experience. Both of them are amazing people who have taken what was an extremely hard time in their lives and are now using it for good.
You can watch the trailer for the movie here.
I got the chance to attend SupplyExpo 2009 to shoot Mark giving a keynote presentation.
