Floored (the demise of traditional floor-traders)

Although Floored is not really a forex film, it's still a well-done documentary film about the people and business of the Chicago trading floors (specifically, the futures exchange). The film, released in 2010) essentially focuses on a few Chicago floor traders who have been impacted by the electronic trading revolution and whose jobs have been threatened by the use of computers in the trading world. (Obviously, forex trading wouldn't be what it is today without traders all being interconnected through an online network, so this "revolution" has actually been a good thing for most traders like you and me!)

The film has become particularly relevant in light of the US financial crisis of 2009; Greg Burns of the Chicago Tribune has said of the film's director:"By dealing with hard times in the workplace, Smith taps into a vein running through millions of lives in this brutal recession, as the nation’s unemployment rate soars toward 10 percent".
