The filmmaker Christoph Schwarz is broke. Might he artistically exploit this emergency situation and shoot a documentary chronicling how he goes on a money strike for a year? But what should he do about the director’s fee to which he is entitled? Should he throw it into a campfire and let it burn in a bold anti-capitalistic gesture or should he buy a vacation house in Austria’s Waldviertel after all? Piggy Bank is a self-ironic meta-documentary about the economic potential of a money strike.
