Informant Documentary

"How does a radical activist end up working for the FBI as an informant?" Today's trailer is for a doc that premiered last year and is just now being released by Music Box. It's called Informant and profiles radical left-wing activist turned FBI informant Brandon Darby. The doc won top prize at the DOC NYC Festival and also played the San Francisco & Austin Film Festivals. Not to be confused with Steven Soderbergh's The Informant! or the doc The Imposter, Informant dives into the mysterious story of an activist who turned out to be an FBI informant. Was he duping all of his friends? What's the real story? This looks quite fascinating.

Watch the official US trailer for Jamie Meltzer's documentary Informant, in high def from Apple:

"What is the truth?" Winner of Best Documentary at the 2012 Doc NYC Festival, Informant is a fascinating, gripping portrait of Brandon Darby, a radical activist turned FBI informant who has been alternately vilified and deified. In 2005, Darby became an overnight hero when he traveled to Katrina-devastated New Orleans to rescue a friend. Soon after, he co-founded Common Ground, a grassroots relief organization. But over the next few years, he began hiding a shocking secret. After two young protestors were arrested at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Darby revealed he had been instrumental as an FBI informant. Music Box Films is releasing Informant in theaters and VOD starting September 13th. For more, visit their website.

There has been a doc about this, a few actually but I watched one "Better This World" on Netflix that was pretty good.
