‘Man On The Run’ documentary about Jho Low, 1MDB fugitive who stole $4.5 billion, begins production

Jho Low
  • A documentary titled “Man on the Run” highlighting the life of 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1DMB) fugitive Low Taek Jho, also known as Jho Low, has begun production in London.
  • The documentary, directed by Cassius Michael Kim (“The Wonder List With Bill Weir”), will focus on Low’s affluent upbringing, his studies at elite international schools, his Hollywood connections and the 1MDB scandal.
  • “Through interviews with previously unheard sources and original reporting, our film will be the definitive accounting of this saga as well as an indictment of the global capitalist system and its inability to regulate itself in the face of avarice and corruption,” Kim said.
  • Low has been on the run since the U.S. and Malaysian governments charged the financier with conspiring to launder billions of dollars, with some reports suggesting he now resides in China.
  • An official release date for “Man on the Run” has not yet been announced.
