When director Sandra Mohr decided to find out why her family's 401(k) was looking more like a 201(k) she probably had no idea she would be exposed to the corrupt underworld of hedge funds, criminal market managers, greedy legislators, and sexism.
Michael Moore, Oliver Stone and Ridley Scott have all been producing new films about stock market manipulation and Wall Street schemes, but Sandra Mohr's "Stock Shock" is first out of the gate. Unfortunately, because she is a woman, that has been completely ignored.
Interestingly, "Stock Shock" which follows the downfall of Sirius XM stock, introduces the satellite radio's founder: Martine Rothblatt--formerly known as Martin Rothblatt. In 1994, Rothblatt, a male-to-female transsexual, underwent sex reassignment surgery and changed her name to Martine Aliana Rothblatt. She has since become a vocal advocate of transgenderism and probably indirectly encouraged director Sandra Mohr to "join the club."
As a man, Sandra Mohr believes her chances for an Academy Award in Documentary Film are about 600% better. She is taking suggestions for a name change but may stick with "Sandy" which is considered unisexual.
