READ MORE: Hot Docs Review: FBI Informant Tale ‘(T)error’ Is One Of The Most Riveting Documentaries Of The Year
In “(T)error,” a camera crew is privy to a live FBI counterterrorism sting for the first time ever. The documentary centers on active informant Saeed “Shariff” Torres, who has let filmmakers follow him — without telling the FBI. “(T)error” thus shines an unprecedented light on the government’s counterterrorism tactics, especially the murky line between access and coercion.
The suspenseful documentary, which was directed by Lyric R. Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe, won a special jury award when it screened at Sundance earlier this year.
“(T)error” hits theaters on October 7. Watch our exclusive trailer above.
