Equal parts political thriller and high-stakes investigation, this powerhouse documentary follows reporter Jeremy Scahill as he ventures into uncharted territory to uncover the rise of the JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command), a powerful wing of the US military engaged in operations in hidden corners of the globe. Scahill first caught wind of the JSOC while reporting on a night raid gone tragically wrong in a remote area of Afghanistan, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. As he digs deeper, a portrait of a far-reaching covert battle with a “kill list” that stretches over 45 countries emerges. This fearless and uncompromising exposé brings to light the chilling realities of modern war and its profound consequences for citizens around the world. In Person: Director Rick Rowley; subject Jeremy Scahill (Sun).
