Speaking Engagements

Eyal Berger will moderate a panel titled, "Gradually, Then Suddenly: The Bankruptcy of Detroit, a documentary film presented in connection with NCBJ's Behind the Bench," at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges. The panel will discuss "Gradually, Then Suddenly: The Bankruptcy of Detroit," the winner of the 2021 Library of Congress/Ken Burns Prize for Film, which was researched and produced over a six-year period by Sam Katz. The film features interviews with dozens of creditors and impacted residents and retirees, many of whom are speaking about this groundbreaking case for the first time. Continuing the discussion of Detroit's historic Chapter 9 case, featured as part of NCBJ's Behind the Bench virtual series earlier this year, Mr. Katz, a former public finance advisor, will present excerpts from the film, take questions from the audience and provide further insights regarding the complexity and controversies that characterized this story.
