The maker of the controversial film “Dreams from My Real Father” claims a journalist has been investigating the movie using information that could only have been obtained by hacking into his company’s bank account.
Director Joel Gilbert says unknown parties appear to have illegally acquired “private company bank information” and supplied it to journalist Seth Rosenfeld, who in turn has been using the information to ply answers from customers who purchased large quantities of his DVD, as well as a limited partner.
“The only way our banking information could have been obtained would have been through illegal hacking into our private company bank accounts,” Gilbert claimed in a statement. “The information was not public.”
Rosenfeld is a former reporter with the San Francisco Chronicle and is listed as a correspondent with the Center for Investigative Reporting, an organization funded in part by left-wing activist and billionaire George Soros.
