(T)error – Oct. 22nd


Thursday, October 22nd, 7pm at the Emerson Center.

Winner of a Special Jury Prize for Breakout First Feature at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival

Saeed “Shariff” Torres, a counterterrorism informant for more than two decades, takes on what he swears is his last job for the FBI and invites filmmakers to follow his covert efforts to befriend a suspected jihadist – without informing his superiors. As surprising revelations emerge, not only about Torres’ past, but also about the increasingly murky ethical grounds of his present mission, (T)ERROR explores just how far we are going to prevent terror and exactly what liberties we are sacrificing to get there.
