Through the insights of whistleblowers, investigators, prosecutors, military and industry insiders Shadow World reveals how the international trade in weapons — with the complicity of governments, their militaries and intelligence agencies, defense contractors, arms dealers and agents — fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracies and creates widespread suffering. The film unravels a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them. It illustrates why this trade accounts for almost 40% of all corruption in global trade, and how it operates in a parallel legal universe, in which the national security elite who drive it are seldom prosecuted for their often illegal actions.
