I screen the hell out of my films screener for hundreds of people i mean this covert found that i just made up probably under five hundred people I love getting feedback. Most editors hate that. But i always love storing information. I can back of my head just to see what people you know. We're not just some little castle to osama sashes ultimately we want people see our films right.

Emotionally intellectually this truly happening or is it over on my dreaming. It's happening so it even with the scripted on the scissors. Shoot and it you know but with docs really is like my favorite thing is breaks down all of our preconceived notions that we didn't even know we had in the first place by the ember. Just like oh. I don't have any judgments you know. And now i have to make the whole audience. Feel that way you know. Do your test screenings they homespun. Are they like twenty people on clipboards afterwards or is it like five hundred people at once like five screenings one hundred people like how did you had you break down. I generally go to sort of like rounds ago through like people. I trust i and then i go through other people i trust and then i go through people i don't know. And then you have the original people back some people back then and then i somehow to do like actual focus groups now like one. Is you pay for but like on the females. Do not a right Test screenings to than they end even just watching a film with people haven't seen the film you the criticism that comes up on us. You know what. I mean in seeing through there is even if that's not what they're seeing but just soon as you're screening for any kind of audience it's like a whole you know what i mean. I ended up like re.

"Always want to go into it in. Especially they're really wanted to make medigene a character You know besides his efforts to a decent size mental health. He done a lot of work trying to show the world that there's more to managing more to columbia than drugs and pablo escobar and so of making making matters gina character the energy the beauty the love Character was really important to me to also thought the score was awesome. And i it felt like they were friends of his. Or how did you find those composers. Have they come to be part of the project. So i worked with the same hosmer. I i've always used h. Scott salinas. And then i wanted to have a lot the sounds of jose in the score as well and so i- he has this sort of wonder kid producer twenty four years old Skyrock indo In sky came in for a few days into sorta gave us a bunch of beets in a bunch of sort of like wild tracks that we incorporate in the score and then he's he's got a few specific songs winter using just a lot of sort of Almost like wild sound that incorporated into the into the score to make sure that it was a huge physician between the energy of jose's music. End the score itself. Although i did want position. But i want to be like a huge chasm. No is like this. It was like arrest. Restful coming off the song but it was like it felt one you know. It felt like a piece but it's interesting. You are the same composer all the time. That's a very intimate relationship than like at across every film and that person must be very. What's his new Salinas super versatile composer. Do you also use the same other crew members that are the same or is it pretty much different team. I've i've sort of varied up a bit over the years but I i liked working often with the same people. I think it's the best that you know. You have a family in you. Go with that family and But you know. I think each film requires a different set of characters depending on what the subject matters so that collaboration must have been really fund fro. One of j alvin guys with your composer and it worked. Yeah it's neat. All right another question from the audience in the back but there for sure. Yeah i mean. I think he was sort of damned if he didn't damned if he didn't as succession You know i think for the most part he was he was A lot of good feedback for what he did. I think he's got a lot of hate to you. Know people didn't think he said enough people didn't think he you know he didn't go as far as they wanted him to And yet some people said he didn't go yet. This ran the gamut of people who were happy with what he said aren't happy with what he said. And i think the interesting thing is that when you know as i'm sure many of you know is at columbia has been undergoing massive protests again over the past couple months as the film's been released and that seems to directory that you see in this one week during the film. has has been rekindled Both on the streets medigene but also within jose himself. You know people looking to him to say something people not happy with him with what he said in that. Same sort of debate so whether how much she's grown from the week Has been sort of you know debated a lot. Anyone else right here. It's a very good question. I can't say i've thought about that i think. I don't know i think on one hand in. I'm sure people now is might not be happy with this andrew. But i empathize with jose. I feel like my. I generally try to not make my films political. Although they are extremely political you know i. I most my about very topical things. But i keep myself outta them when i do press. I don't like to bring my own. You know i'm. I have very strong feelings about this world in in our government and our government Over the past four years But i i really to me. Our world is divided enough. I think that film and documentary film has ability to bring people together. And that's that's sort of the smaller role that i feel like i play in this world To while i didn't necessarily totally agree with his stance. I could understand empathize with his his reluctance. I guess to to sort of enter into that debate that i don't know if that entered your question. Yes yeah i really talented Editors from both columbia in the states. there's four of us and then me And it started out sort of pandemic story. The eighty five ninety percent of the film was cut pre code in then we locked last ten percent Sort of as. Kobe was entering the us. And as starting this other doc in so it was. It was a strange thing to. I'm a very hands on person To a fault in in so yeah it was. It was strange. Do so. I generally when i start out for Probably said this on the stage before. But when i was twenty one years old i heard almazo safe. You end up with the store. You started with the new on listening along the way and i think that's good advice for life and i think that's good advice for filmmaking. Don't be dogmatic be open to the story changing. And that's something that i've really held close to my heart both in my macro decisions in my career and on a sort of frame to frame minute. Second second while shooting claim to fame in the room way.

"This be the new you so comfortable I sensed it. An i tested it in played out and so we ended up having For a lot of the verite through the week is two different. Dp's often with him And i was you know right there with the monitor. Yeah is a way different. Experience for me I just seen this movie Ways i don't know if seen it but others really really beautiful film. So i reached out to the dp It's a narrative film and he never saw a doctor. For and i'd another dp hooves. You know sort of veteran. Doc shooter and i decided right before the little relented mexico that i wanted the narrative dp shoot the verite. The doctor if he to oversee the concert. And i think that's probably the more the better decisions i made. It was really fun to see drew. Who shall aways work in. Verite environment was so instinctual as a really fun thing to see I made a narrative. Private or in was really lucky to work with Rob richardson on that in. You know we got a lot of that similarly sort of verite way. I'd always dreamed of having. Bob shoulda on dock with me so i guess this sort of closest i got to that for for this for probably sixty percent of it. I wasn't shooting the factually day-to-day verite I was yeah. I was as about. It wasn't holding the camera and then and then for some of the more intimate scenes that was just me along with the camera. Yeah his his. His his team was behind the film. i it was a requirement for me in making this final. Cut a new. There's a lot of players volvo than those. This is mandatory for me to have final cut on this so Luckily there's no issues in. He's been very gracious with the film in this time in in marketing and everything so In part of the reason. I didn't chew going back to the previous question is that it was able to establish report with jose quite quickly but as the sort of cast of characters was coming in and out i would. It was constantly dancing explaining trying to make you feel comfortable and get used to the sort of this final approach so as it was just a constant dance throughout that week. Yes right there. We we didn't we didn't use A chemical is tony. Venice actually use predominantly extremely cheap discount in like five hundred dollar lenses that that i'm sort of really dogmatic with the lenses that us he's cannon seventeen to fifty five and a canon twenty four zero five and that's what i using the cartel and that's where he is the city of ghosts and that's what i sort of required to us on this They're not great lenses but they to me they're the best way to shoot berretta So thank you thought that. It's not surprising that sony actually Green is just like it just. The color is incredible. And i also thought it was really interesting that he's just so colorful his land. His world is just color is house is clothing everything. He's struggling with so much darkness underneath it. All you know. I think we i.

"In him. I mean i think Ah saw someone who was really vulnerable. And i think you know on the surface. He had everything I mean that's the whole tension between j galvin. Right is that this. He's a the babylon ever knows. Forty six and a half million followers is sort of playboy. Fancy cars jewelry as says. He's a really sensitive soul and That also is a bit of a trope in music in celebrity athletes. And everything sort of these two duality of a person but Particularly stark in him And i think that the tension between the public facing j galvin in the interior. Jose i think is is sort of a fulcrum of of of a lot of anxiety in a lot of attention At his core he's just a he is a really normal guy in that scene in communitarize day when he's going to see all the fans in the photo shoot it's really him. I mean if he talks to the little kid around app tomb in the same talks to jay z year. That he talks to me talks to you. I mean he really treats everyone the same. And i think that's a really beautiful thing so Yeah it was really. I feel extremely lucky that he made himself so open ethnic it's very rare three people that famous do that So i have a tremendous amount of respect for him. And i you know i at an amazing amazing crew in columbia that that helps Make the phone possible It was really. It was really special experience. Yeah he i mean. I think the whole metaphor also of him coming home and then coming home to himself you know. Having to like really dig deep it all really Automatically was a beautiful kind of holistic experience. You know So i love the shot I'll never forget that picture. You put in of him with paint splatter on his face miami just struggling by day and night to make it you know and then when he does. It's not like yeah. He's he doesn't lose that part of himself. You know love always says he can never turn down anybody taking a picture with him and then you see that at the very end of the film like people. He's like literally putting his window up and down like let people in so it's great. I want to open it up and make sure that other people have a chance to ask matt questions of right there in the center back Also thank you. I know this is a strange experience. Be back in. A theater is really really special to first of all. See it on the big screen in this amazing room but also byu with people. So i know it's hard to re assimilate into the world. So thank you all for coming here. yeah it was. It was also a different experience. Shooting verite with jose. I knew how comfortably was with cameras so in most of my verde films. It's often just me alone shooting. That's that's where i feel most comfortable as a director. whatever. I am.

"I always say whether it's cartel Coaster made about kovin Is to if we can at least attempt to allow audience members to feel what we felt in that room in that stadium in that in that meth lab. In wherever you are if we can put you on the ground there make you feel those emotions than we've somewhat succeeded. That's absolutely at its. It's about creating a visceral response in the audience. And that's that can be hard when you're not you know actually framing something up as a scripted film. You know but you you manage to do that really well. I mean and i was actually wondering if you started the film in mexico just to get us show as he arrives in michigan or whether it it was a relationship to cartel land in and that you actually have shot extensively mexico and you speak spanish and maybe that's how you even came on board this film but there's no relationship there no in fact i was actually the first time i'd been back to mexico since cartel ian so no. I think the purpose of mexico's sort of a foil to to be part of the arrival of the big homecoming concert on so i really want to be with him on that journey. I didn't even plan as until before Plan on shooting that first concert in mexico. I just when he walked out in all those cell phones shine. China is grabbed the camera and started shooting. Ms it looked so beautiful. Yeah the coverage of mexico's show is not as you were there to get the plane ride. In more so than industry insurance see how he moves around the stage in see how he relates his body language the audience. I really was more there to study him On dodgy shot it ended up shooting a few different songs but and his speech about depression which is a perfect opening. The foul really sets the tone I have this chance to ask you which. I don't think even when you were on my show for cartel land i asked you what. What was the original. Draw to be dot filmmaker like. How did you ever even start. I got rejected from teacher america. I got rejected from film school. Yeah but that i. That's because i had been making documentaries in college and they didn't know what this.

"You know he's spiritual guy in as as you see in the film. Meditation positions role in comedy has nerves in has been sort of his his medicine as anxiety depression. I think you know. Ramirez has been a big part of that for him. And so i think as you struggling with these sort of big ideas of who he is. And what is his role He sought the counsel of all the people around him But you know. That's why. I love making verite. Doctors you just. You just never know what's going to happen But the things. What i find in my experience making them is that the puzzle pieces arrive like if you hang in there all the pieces start just appearing in this magical way whether it's weaker it's a year you know it's like comes to be and then of course you at it. And that's where it really the serendipity you can connect all those dots magically Did that what. What was the biggest surprise for you. In the edit. I think this film more than any film. By far the sort of the ark was quite clear as shooting in i think the most the nuance actually came during that week in subtexts in and obviously there's a lot that you know the juxtaposition energy that we created in the data room but i think Again more so than any other film i've ever made. I really was clear. Sort of what was happening the time it was fun to be able to sort of. I always believed that. Context is a slippery slope. I didn't wanna make the cradle-to-grave jose film. I wanted to make really present day. Present tense movie. And you know i want to give you little information's you needed snow about where it came from to understand where he is now. But i didn't want to go into all those tropes that a lot of music homes have actually. I wanted to mention that like. There's no the songwriting or his hair being spray painted. Or you know all the things that you would normally see. There's a little bit of that backstage in between performances changing clothing peeing in a bottle in cool little moments like that but otherwise it is really interesting to see a film about a musician where you're not really seeing any of that. You're not seeing how the songs came together. You're not seeing the rehearsals. You know I think that's really pretty great that choice but did you said you shot a lot of traditional things to make sure to cover your basis than just ended up being able to leave him out right. Yeah i had one of my producers chewed. I'd actually never did any of the interviews. Just because i was like i so i felt so strongly that we have is verite film and so that's what i all. My energy was was put into that. I wanted that as a safety mechanism. Just in case. I was wrong but Yeah i think i love. I love editing. i love shooting. I feel so lucky to do what i do. What we do and I think one of the things..

"About his own battles with mental health anxiety and depression. Something that i've dealt with myself and we just connected in. I felt like to me whenever i look at a film. It always wanna try to say something. Hopefully bigger deeper than just was on the surface. I knew just in that sort of thirty minute. Conversation that he would make itself vulnerable I'd no idea that when we land medigene that the protests would happen that the that the film would become verite film about really an artist. You know struggling to find his voice But that's what the the film became. I was actually gonna ask you about that. Because i as an artist struggle with as a filmmaker becoming an activist we kind of threaten our access like our access becomes at risk. Because we're taking a side. And i wonder if that was part of why he was reluctant. You know he said that. I like throw the artist. Really just make people feel better or get bring people together and if you're saying one side or the other than that was the risk maybe you know almost like taylor swift went through But yeah tell me about that. Arc what happened with him there. I think he a lot of things. Hopefully a lot of it's shown on the movie. But i think he felt like he really put himself out there in talking about his own battles with mental health. As a you know. A man from columbia Generally talk about. And i felt like he sort of felt like he'd already put himself out there a lot and i think this week is really reckoning about politically was his role as as was famous. People in colombia. Obviously evans looking to him to say something and as you said like he felt like he uses entertainer Until as you know we you know you can't plan the stuff as a documentary filmmaker. But to have this sort of prism of this one week to sort of have a man reckoning with himself seeking the counselors trends in his in his colleagues to try to understand that role Was was fascinating was the turning point for him. The boy who was killed and and sort of wear did you. When did it bubble up for you. Like oh my god. This is happening. I've got to go on and get this because it's reminded me of your work cartel land you know. I imagine you're probably the person filming a lot of that. It didn't look like archival. The you acquired the i. I mean we went down there kind of making a very thinking. We make a very traditional sort of music presenting. This concert interviewed his family. I mean we did interview tons and tons of interviews Through that week with everyone around him. But i instantly felt like i could make verite film that i could make to fly on the wall and so while we had that that in the can you know no one's ever seen it because yes just the dna film completely changed and that was it was so exciting to build a sort of shoot We were shooting in eighteen hours a day. We shooting we from the moment. He woke up to anyone to bed. And this is a guy who obviously has had cameras random his whole life or whole sort of professional life and i don't think he'd ever had cameras around him in this way in for me as a filmmaker in two obviously is that trust in that report generally built over weeks or months and i had to build that like instantly and you.

It's beautiful sound was. I was just asking you what you shot it on because it's gorgeous it's the color i mean he's so colorful and his motif is so colorful but the cameras using we're just i mean just picked up every i've never seen anything so just beautiful in terms of Crowd shots there at the end. Thank you yeah you said. How many people did you have shooting that last concert. The concert we had. I think twelve cameras. Okay and where were you our thinking around or has in control room to ahead said directing the directing live and you told me also during dinner that you had never shot concert before this hell never saw the. I've noticed more than two cameras in my life. So that's amazing. Then we had about a week to prep for so because in the i've shot a lot of concerts and that shot in mexico in that first concert when you get behind him and there's glowing white light and then there's the phones it. It's like the dream shot. I mean i've never actually seen a concert. Shot that stat perfect. You know it's a beautiful shot. Yeah and it really speaks to what he's talking about which is is probably a big part of. Why did tell me about how you ended up making this film. Yeah i mean so jose His team reach out to me I was always interested in making music in maybe making a concert doc I met him after show that he played as a garden. And we we connected.

"Worldwide sensation and And it was really my life on film. It was like you know but simultaneously. I'd been filming. We live in public. And so i made a movie about mind control in between which she's like. My jazz record called join us. Because bush won the election even though there is no reason for him to win. It was like we were in a war predicated on a lie or communism. The dumpsite thought there was mind in america. Made a movie about cults. Call join us in judas. But meanwhile the whole time since nineteen ninety nine. I was filming josh errors and his vision of the internet for movie call. We live in public. Which i couldn't finish until we had the iphone because no one would understand. What happened that bunker manhattan in one thousand nine hundred nine without the internet and facebook so as soon as data came forward that i realized that movie was prophecy of social media and a lack of intimacy and privacy in modern age and i to finish that and then that one sundance when that one sundance. It really solidified my career. You know in a way. That i i can't. It's just incredible. Because i think people off off dig will. Maybe she's maybe it's just the story that she grabbed. Hold over them. When i when i begin the first person to win sundance twice. It was like oh it's her. She actually knows how to tell stories. You know which is then granted me a lot of opportunities more than financial opportunities. The opportunity to document what i want. You know when. I'm interested in something i cannot. I can usually go find that person or pursue that thing and i have this reputation. Thanks to sundance. That can't be taken away. But that's just the festival in terms of maple for i have sundance to thank for a formation of the project. Really i mean i- option the rates originally two thousand six got in touch with foundation in two thousand nine a while. Because i'd won sundance twice. They gave me the rights. Like wouldn't they wouldn't have recognized me from adam otherwise so And then. Because i want when i won for wheel live in public. I got a call from the institute about have scripted film. I happen to have a script. A wonderful man that had been written by brusca. Richard wonderful guy mostly forgotten designer and he wrote her original script. That was like a push. Shoe miss look at mapplethorpe. And i said why do i do have a project sort of in the background that i'm developing about robert mapplethorpe and they said we'd love to see it and they invited me to the lab says summer two thousand ten. I went and i lived at sundance over a month. My first lunch the first egg there was one on one with robert. Redford you know just about for. I had ed harris standing next to me onset. I had leslie link ladder giving the critique. I shot four scenes with hollywood actors to workshop and at the end of it. they said. Congratulations you know you really ready to ready to direct scripted work based upon how you directed these scenes of by you need a new script and you have to write it and you need a star and so that that was it i mean they is what makes you think i can read it and i said well the way you've made these other movies. You clearly understand this kind of character and how to tell that story. We'd like to see it applied square and this is feedback from from redford and at me. Talk about good calls. Like edison against it was ten of them. Ten masters joan darling. An incredible acting coach never gone to film school. You know i come out of college and just don into making fills. Dive started making documentaries. That are public access station. When i was a student at yale university had no production facilities back then. So i had no real formal training and my training came from sundance and it came from the director's lab. Writers live on. When i got out of there. I sat down and i thought i have to write the script and i contacted mabel foundation. They sent me a box of books and some early works book. This gold book that i then learned about it as applause artist which becomes part of the movie by both that compared his work. Rodin and nick alangelo that was absolutely vital to my understanding of who he as an artist world. And you know it was thanks to the support of middled or foundation and sundance that this film gummy even gave us a grant. I mean it. Yeah so i can't say enough for. Wow let's that's amazing that servants as just to say they are very important institution. For truth they are. They're all about nurturing. The lakers in telling her stories. And telling the truth. Absolutely you hit from directors all the time about how sundance is you know. One of the best went one of the best Gateways i mean. I like my favorite stories kevin. Smith's i mean everyone knows that story so What is straight. He was to do with the festival and can be at the festival. Yeah so he was. Basically it's a story of clicks. Saw him maxing out five credit cards when he was young. He just shot the film At his old convenience store at nights not in business. Alison you know. He's just like it was like a hail mary you know. He sold his car in and then he got noticed. And that's the power of the sun. Offense don't just mean there's there's no better festival the premier which is why it was tragic that that mapplethorpe didn't have a chance to share. I couldn't own it. But but i think it's just. Oh it's not as often known that the latins are are quite as formative as they are the sundance directing writing producing labs are just like and now they're all around the world. I mean i encourage. Anyone is watching this to look it up because you might think. Oh that's in utah. But now they're in england india there. They're all over the place now Well maybe with covid maybe not by than in virtually the screenwriting wives they just they just really nurture artist. Michelle sadder i should say. Her name is one of the most phenomenal forces in independent film. She founded sundance with. Robert redford and she runs the labs and she's one of the most sensitive a intelligence people i've ever met so yeah. I'm extremely grateful for that. An eye to was you know before before dig went to chance. I was literally so skinny. My brother and i were early dig. We're buying tapes because we saw it on tapes back and the people that jason will be like. Shouldn't you go across. The street to the grocery store gets booed by you. Buying so many teaser. Because you're so skinny. You know like we were not starving to death but we were definitely taking every set and putting film which no one understood because neither band sound skinned. Anything couldn't get arrested making up home then. I finally rebound investor anton early duster away because he was going through his. You've seen the film since he was going to wear white and come when i call heroines as like threatening threatened his life and that was it for that own shit finance. Your romance said you're sitting on pot of gold. I hope you keep it up. But i can't risk my life for this like okay. Well we all our stories. Wow we're riding along. I've one fun question for you.

I have to stand by this cut because this is the movie that i made in some shape or form but not not really sir. You must must've taken a lot are For for really standing around. I really admire and respect that the show yes a lot of distinct parallels there and it's a great learning experience you know to it just important as an artist especially if you're making films about people that are real To kind of really aware of all of the circumstances in life and how they kind of play together you know and that's really what attracted me to film making him. A first place was could i could. I recreate the serendipity of life somehow. Could i connect the dots of the incredible journey. That we all take this unique journey that we all take that has so many parallels we all have we go through so many things that make this the human condition that we have on you know no matter of circumstances rebel. Experience that during cova now this past year And it's just it's it's always important to me to kind of balance and my work with trying as best. I can to to have to be present in my life. And i'm someone who's dedicated to my work you know. I'm like cutting my films. I edit my films shoot my films even shot all the super eight middle's united kept a camera on my director's chair and i knew that in ninety days we couldn't shook the entire script. So i i was shooter way to work. I shoot it on away. Way to set the brooklyn bridge a lot of that footage that you see you know just kind of life in new york. At that time. I was just in between stuff or mad like lying in the bed as nancy schreiber. Fantastic depew relighting. I like films with money on his chester kate. Mary-anne and say take patty and sandy outside and have them do that dance. You know just have phone with the actors so that we had some peanut butter. The bread is the way that's awesome. That's that's that's such a cool way to do things it's awesome. I wanted to ask you about the actual. john wrote self. Because you've primarily directed documentaries about musicians like russell brand the dandy wall some curious to know what stage you're towards covering the life of a different kind of obvious but also choosing it to do it as more of a drama set of a documentary Because it look it suddenly feels documentary like But like you said you also focused on being incredibly reflective as well. So is that something that you wanted to achieve drama and you thought was more effective liar drama than a documentary as well well first off. He's dead so i felt like i wanted to bring up a live in order to make an anthem for artists. I wanted to Really have you feel the tension that he felt as he was coming of age coming into his art and really the camera became this almost tiger's tale that he grabbed a hold of it led him into these worlds he could never have otherwise entered. You know it mediated the experience of made it safe for him to go into some. You know he wasn't. He wasn't yet in touch with the fact he wasn't yet allowing himself to admit he was gay. Because being gay when you're a catholic boy in that era was really not not good. You wouldn't be right with god anymore. He certainly wouldn't be right with father and he was an altar boy i mean. He had all the respect for the church but he also loved the iconography and love the sexuality inherent and all of that imagery around jesus in the blood and the crossing the river. Cages in the flowing robes. I mean he loves that stuff is and it informs all his work you know but before he could even be gay he was in those gay plots with the cameras and and i relate to that as a documentary filmmaker. You know you mentioned dig. You mentioned my day. You know whether it's dig or we live in public in a bunker in manhattan with one hundred fifty people living under constant surveillance. Or it's you know a brand the second coming with russell brand and suddenly in the comedy world or it's even movie cool at it. The camera loudly into climate change labs and at into places. I never would've gone and asking questions. I never would have asked you know and i feel like that's really what the camera did for robber early on so i related on that level but i wanted to make a scripted film because i really felt like if people could see a person like this. He's very similar to a lot of my subjects. That i call them impossible visionaries other people that kind of take on the impossible. They see something we can't see on there. They have to kind of withstand the doubt ridicule of many people. That don't understand always pushing up. How always pushing up but as much as you might have issues with things that they do or things that they say are how they act. You can't help. Respect them you know and hopefully you actually start to kind of lean in to the gray.

There was that thing going on on Twitter this week regarding Bruno Mars, where he said on Twitter that he's got a new band and would love to appear on the Grammy Awards, and it went back and forth with the Grammy people. Oh, did you change your number? We've been trying to get ahold of you. Oh, yes, I'd be happy to appear so anyway. Bruno Mars. Ondo.

Understanding the GameStop Stock Market Drama
"Markets have been shaken again over the past two weeks as Reddit Day traders boosted shares of companies like game Stop. And sent short selling hedge funds running with long short funds losing 6% overall last month, and Melvin Capital alone, plummeting 53%. But most hedge funds emerged unscathed. And Steve Cohen's 0.72 even attracted $1.5 billion in new money. Here's sweet that Ramachandran, GAM investment manager, I assume hedge funds are probably reluctant to short small cap stocks right now, if the fear that the Reddit brigade might be behind those, But by early this week, game stops to the moon rally started to come back toward Earth, and not even the reddit flash mob or changes the top of the company. Could get the irrational exuberance going again reminding us why hedge funds and short sellers target companies like Gamestop investor that gets caught in the up dressed on that and doesn't understand that investing well, it looks like it's all going up to the person to click the last by understand that that could happen to them that quickly. That's former e trade financial CEO Carl Rossner. I ask Council on foreign relations senior fellow Sebastian Mallaby, if anything will fundamentally change. In the hedge fund world. I don't really, I mean, I think that hedge funds which of course, go back to the sixties, at least have proven to be an amazingly robust platform from which to think creatively about risk. Ondo. They adapt. You know they get new stuff yesterday in their ways when they began, there was no such thing as trading currencies because turned his world fixed it together one mark, it's hardly existed. You have to trade stocks by appointment on. They adapted all the way through that, As everything changed the authentic thea advent of reddit the advent of Robin Hood. This is just the latest iteration of the long, long history of financial innovation, and every time hedge funds figure it out. You also have regulators trying to figure it out as it were, after the fact we have the Treasure Secretary Janet Yellen now saying She's meeting with regulators, saying, We need to take a hard look at this about the volatility and whether this might actually put in jeopardy. Some investors. We also have hearings in Congress coming up. Do you expect there might be some tweaking, at least to the regulations? I think with respect to Robin Hood on the fact that it had to close down Access to trading on second stocks. That's the kind of market interruption which regulators order take action on. You need the infrastructure of trading to be reversed you, you know you need to look at the plumbing, and some regulators put it. And so the back part of the system will definitely because they're fresh. Look, What about on the short selling side? There have been proposals as you know, well for short, so staff to disclose their positions, individual positions, which is done is I understand in Europe. Do you think there might be a renewal of that call? And by the way, why do we have to disclose on the long side and not the short? I'm not sure, Actually, that hedge funds do disclose on the long side unless they buy more than Disposable fresh over believe it's 5% or something off the company so you could get away with a lot without disclosing. I think you know when you Taking a really big position. Probably there's it becomes a systemic threat to you. You know, you might blow up if that position where to go very badly wrong on so regulators to care about the soundness of the system ever all Have a legitimate interests, but I think it's more positions shouldn't have to be disclosed. But we certainly had some large hedge funds who took a big hit on. I wonder whether that did suggest it could be systemic risk here. Well, the beauty of hedge funds is that through their long history They've proven to be smart enough to fail. Not too big to fail, they actually can blow up and people often cite long term capital management in 1998 Aziz. The big exception actually, if you go back and look at that incident The New York Fed convened the banks to recapitalize them, but no taxpayer money. Zero went him. So freestanding hedge funds. I'm not counting here, the subsidiary of best stones that went wrong in a rage. Freestanding hedge funds have never had a taxpayer bailout mills in capital has not needed to taxpayer bailout. That's the good thing about hedge funds.
