Nov 20: CMU IFF screening of T(ERROR)

A courageous, controversial Pittsburgh-based film.  "Intense and intricately crafted, (T)ERROR  explores just how far we are going to prevent terror and exactly what liberties we are sacrificing to get there."  – Arthur Ryel-Lindsey  

(T)ERROR, shot here in Pittsburgh, goes undercover to follow an FBI informant on an assignment to befriend a Wilkinsburg man suspected of being a Taliban sympathizer. In doing so, directors Lyric Cabral and David Felix Sutcliffe push the boundaries of documentary ethics by plunging into the middle of an active FBI sting operation in an attempt to understand and reveal how the U.S. government identifies and apprehends terror suspects.

Don’t miss this incredibly daring film that has been winning awards all over the world, including the Special Jury Prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival!

The Carnegie Mellon International Film Festival, organized by The Humanities Center, continues to celebrate the art of filmmaking and the themes that define our contemporary social landscape. Celebrating its 10th Anniversary, the 2016 festival (March 17th to April 3rd) will bring the ubiquitous and intimate theme of conflict to life through the power of independent film, poignant discussions, ethnic cuisine, and more. This year’s festival will both move us and enrich us by helping us better comprehend the unique ways in which “Faces of Conflict” shape our modern world and ourselves.

The festival is dedicated to Paul Goodman, a 
world-renowned filmmaker, psychologist, and Carnegie Mellon professor, whose legacy continues to live on through scholarships that allow the festival to present compelling, international films and culturally provocative events each year.
