THE RISE AND FALL OF THE DOGECOIN MILLIONAIRE

FROM THE DIRECTOR

ROBINHOOD KID

FINANCIAL INFLUENCER

Kayla Kilbride is an American TikTok star and Gen-Z influencer. She’s become famous for the simple ways she helps her generation learn about financial markets. From interviews with Vlad Tenev to Mark Cuban to Chris Camillo, she’s got her finger on the pulse of how new technology is changing money. She recently quit her job and signed with an agent to take her brand global.

PRO

DOGECOIN HOLDER

Known as the Dogecoin millionaire, Pro is a Brazilian immigrant who has become notorious for YOLO’ing
on Doge. He has $123.86 cents in his bank account, two maxed credit cards, and $2.8 million in Dogecoin holdings. He’s refusing to sell until he hits 10 million or goes broke, and in the meantime is using his Dogecoin infamy to try to build a brand as a financial influencer. He already has an offer for his own Crypto TV show.

DOCUMENTARY BIOS

SENAY KENFE

RETAIL INVESTOR

Long Beach native, community organizer, and son of an Eritrean political refugee, Senay rode the GameStop wave and used his earnings to buy his mom her first house. A long-time retail investor, Senay sees the stock market as a source for financial stability, not a get-rich-quick scheme, and hosts a weekly Stock Club with the Long Beach immigrant community. He’s especially excited about the transformational power of NFTs.

RAYZ RAY

ROBINHOOD PROTESTOR

A construction worker and poker player who lost his life savings day-trading meme stocks. He believes he’s been cheated by Robinhood and is willing to risk his health and marriage to speak up for middle-class Americans who are getting screwed.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

________________________________

It was March of 2020, and I was sitting at home scrolling social media in search of a distraction. At first it came in the form of group chats from friends – telling me to get into stocks and crypto. Soon after, targeted ads began warning me not to miss out on a once in a lifetime opportunity to get rich. It seemed like easy money, and with months of pandemic-fueled unemployment looming, I decided to buy in.

Soon I was trading Tesla, Gamestop, AMC, Dogecoin – any asset that someone on the internet told me to buy. The dopamine highs of trading became my form of rejecting monotonous quarantine life. And the community I found through it, was a way of feeling less lonely. Together, we daydreamed of getting rich and believed we were changing the financial system.

In January of 2021, shortly after GameStop became a national talking point, I put out a tweet seeing if anyone would be interested in making a documentary. Thousands of people engaged with the post, and within three days, we had begun production with XTR and the NYTimes’ Nathaniel Popper. A year and a half later, we completed This is Not Financial Advice — a film that ended up very different from where it began.

Making this character-driven film was cathartic, and illuminating for my own toxic relationship with FOMO, greed, and addiction. The more I filmed with individuals getting caught up in the hype of crypto, the more easily I could see their – and my – mistakes. The internet and social media have forever transformed investing, and I hope this film will help millions of others better understand their relationships to money and to help them think critically about wealth inequality in this country.
