Pharma Bro is a documentary film profiling Martin Shkreli, the financial entrepreneur and pharmaceutical tycoon from Brooklyn, New York. He rose to infamy in 2015 when he increased the price of the drug, Daraprim, by 5500% overnight. That same year, he purchased the Wu-Tang Clan’s single copy of Once Upon a Time in Shaolin for 2 million dollars, and was arrested for securities fraud. The story of Pharma Bro exposes the 21st century rise of bro culture and online trolling, while telling a classic American story of fraud, greed, and just wanting to fit in. Through countless live streams, sit down interviews, news footage, and actual scenes with Martin Shkreli filmed by the film’s director Brent Hodge, the audience will witness the many different sides to the Pharma Bro and learn exactly what it took for him to achieve status as the most hated man in America. This story has been told endlessly by the media, but the film goes further and sheds light on loopholes in the law that allow individuals like Shkreli, a hedge fund protégé who had no experience in the pharma world, to earn an inordinate amount of money and success to the detriment of others.
