Chuck Feeney, self-made American Billionaire and Co-Founder of DFS, world’s leading duty free luxury retailer, agrees to a rare on-screen interview concerning his life’s secret devotion: a lifetime of awe-aspiring anonymous charity.
An Irish-American born in New Jersey during the Great Depression, Feeney became a billionaire many times over in the Sixties and Seventies when he co-founded the Duty Free Shoppers Group. But instead of indulging himself in the usual nonsense, Feeney found that his vast wealth sat uneasily with him, and he has spent the past 25 years or so devising ways to give it away. What’s more, he’s done so anonymously. Until very recently, Feeney’s backing of Atlantic Philanthropies has been a secret, and in this exclusive documentary, he talks for the first time ever about his remarkable life.
