Synopsis: 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.
THE DOCYARD SPRING 2016 SHORTS PROGRAM
Prior to this feature screening, the DocYard is pleased to present ARE POLICE REFORMS CHANGING COP CULTURE INSIDE THE LAPD? (2015, 5:45 min) by FRONTLINE.
About the Shorts Programming
For the Spring 2016 Season, The DocYard shorts have been programmed by The Non-Fiction Cartel with help from DER. The films, selected by Eric P. Gulliver (NFC) and Alijah Case (DER), were chosen to create a dialogue between the short form, the feature documentary, and the audience. The programming aims to showcase innovative short works across the decades, while acknowledging and contributing to the Boston area’s rich history of documentary filmmaking. Celebrating this documentary tradition, the selections represent The Non-Fiction Cartel’s continued collaborations between the Camden International Film Festival, DER, and FRONTLINE.
