Sept. 26, 2010 - PRLog -- The buzz has been building around the issue of short selling ever since investors saw the collapse of the stock market in early 2009. Director Sandra Mohr decided to make a movie about it. "We knew we were onto something when Oliver Stone's office called and asked to see the movie," says the "Stock Shock" director. "We were at Disneyland celebrating the completion of the film and while in line for the submarine ride, I got the call that Oliver Stone wanted to see our movie about naked short selling. I literally had to have someone break into my office to get the DVD delivered immediately to the famous director."

"Stock Shock" is a documentary film that focuses on market manipulation and uses Sirius XM (SIRI) as a case study. In a short sale, an investor borrows stock and sells it in the hope that its price will drop. If it does, the seller profits when he buys back the stock at a lower price and returns the borrowed shares. As short sellers targeted shares of Sirius XM, the stock plummeted to a horrifying low of 5 cents/share in February 2009, leaving an estimated one million Sirius XM investors with their dreams shattered and their investment accounts emptied. Sirius XM had traded at a high of 9.00/share.

"I thought Oliver Stone might want to see the movie because it makes the concept of short selling very easy to understand," says the director, "though I must admit, I was hoping he would include our documentary on his 'Wall Street 2 DVD release!'"

As does "Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps" (starring Michael Douglas and Shia LaBeouf)  "Stock Shock" lays out a compelling case proving the stock of a company can be heavily manipulated, both through naked shorting and also through more standard manipulation tactics.

Stock Shock first screened Sunset Blvd. in Hollywood at the Women's International Film Festival. The movie is now available at Netflix, Target, Best Buy, Barnes and Nobel, Hollywood Video and other online merchants, or at www.StockShockMovie.com.
