Errol Morris' Donald Rumsfeld Doc 'The Unknown Known' Trailer

January 10, 2014

The Unknown Known

"Everything seems amazing in retrospect." At Sundance, we'll see a documentary looking at presidential candidate Mitt Romney as he embarks on and fails to take position in the Oval Office. But later this year, a former White House employee gets a different kind of documentary. The Fog of War documentary director Errol Morris is back with The Unknown Known, which focuses on Donald Rumsfeld, and his viewpoint of certain periods during his political career, including his highly criticized time spent as the Secretary of Defense when the US decided to invade Iraq. Rumsfeld almost seems creepily jolly. Watch now!

Here's the first trailer for Errol Morris' The Unknown Known (via SlashFilm):

The Unknown Known is directed by Errol Morris (The Fog of War) and offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War, and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public. Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his “snowflakes,” tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense. These memos provide a window onto history—not as it actually happened, but as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Radius-TWC releases the film in limited theaters April 2nd.
