(T)ERROR - with filmmakers Lyric Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe

THE SANCTUARY FOR INDEPENDENT MEDIA

December 3, 2015 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

A counterterrorism informant 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. "(T)ERROR" explores how far we are going to prevent terror and exactly what liberties we are sacrificing to get there.

Cabral, an acclaimed photojournalist whose work is held in collection at the Smithsonian Institution, the Studio Museum of Harlem and the Whitney Museum of American Art, and Sutcliffe, a director and cinematographer who has received NEA grants and shot all over the world, met at the Harlem afterschool arts program TRUCE. Cabral was teaching photography, and Sutcliffe video. Says Sutcliffe, “In 2005, one of my students at TRUCE, a young woman named Adama Bah, was arrested by the FBI and accused of being a ‘potential suicide bomber.’” Cabral photographed Bah for an International Center of Photography-sponsored book of portraits of the families of Muslim Americans accused of terrorism, while Sutcliffe thought her story would make a powerful doc. – excerpt from Filmmaker magazine
