Description

Like a great espionage novel set in your own backyard, this stunning work from first-time filmmakers Lyric R. Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe presents a rare glimpse into the murky waters of the government’s counterterrorism practices in the breakout sensation that received a Special Jury Prize at Sundance. In the shadowy world of undercover sting operations, we meet “Shariff,” a revolutionary-turned-informant assigned to befriend a suspected Taliban sympathizer. What starts off with Shariff quietly swapping texts with his handlers takes a mind-blowing twist that turns the tables on the FBI and pushes the boundaries of documentary filmmaking. With unprecedented access to terror investigations, “(T)error” deftly unveils the fragile relationship between individual liberties and the surveillance state, seeking truth from both the watchers and those being watched.
