Peter Schweizer’s best-selling book “Clinton Cash” is headed to the big screen at the Cannes Film Festival later this month.

The movie adaptation of the book, published in May 2015, looks at the finances of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Schweizer is a former William J. Casey Research Fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution and is currently the president of the Government Accountability Institute.

Schweizer’s New York Times best-seller takes a hard look at the connections between the Clinton Foundation and the U.S. Department of State while the current presidential hopeful served as secretary. The documentary will premiere in the U.S. on July 24 in Philadelphia — just one day before the Democratic National Convention kicks off in the City of Brotherly Love.

Throughout the book and the documentary, Schweizer notes the numerous ways Clinton Foundation donors and businesses — many of them foreign — attempted to gain access to Clinton while she was at the State Department. Issues regarding Clinton’s business dealings have plagued her throughout the Democratic primary, Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) even asked that she release the transcripts of talks given to Goldman Sachs and other firms.

The Clintons have amassed a net worth of $110 million over the years, according to Fortune. Their good fortune marks a serious contrast with the August 2014 statement made by Hillary in an ABC interview where she stated the family was “not only dead broke, but in debt,” after leaving the White House. In the same interview, Clinton stated that she and the former president had to, “piece together the resources for mortgages for houses.”
