The Newburgh Sting
In 2009 an FBI informant recruits four Muslim men, petty criminals from a poor neighborhood, who gradually become entangled in a terrorist plot, only to be revealed by the FBI as a terrorist cell. THE NEWBURGH STING documents this remarkable story by using footage from hidden cameras that tell the real story behind the FBI's case, and the story of the informant who helped create a terrorist group. This critical look at the world of counter-terrorism intelligence questions both the motives and the strategies of the authorities tasked with protecting the population.
Meet directors Kate Davis and David Heilbroner at the screenings September 26, September 27 and September 28.
