  • Better This World

    2011. USA. Directed by Kelly Duane de la Vega, Katie Galloway . The dramatic tale of Bradley Crowder and David McKay, who were accused of intending to firebomb the 2008 Republican National Convention, is bursting with idealism, loyalty, crime, and betrayal. The radicalization of the boyhood friends from Midland, Texas, which began under the tutelage of revolutionary activist Brandon Darby, culminated in eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges, and a high-stakes entrapment defense hinging on the actions of a controversial FBI informant. Better This World addresses the effects of the "war on terror" and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America. Winner, 2012 Writers Guild Award for Best Documentary and Gotham Award for Best Documentary. Courtesy of Picture Box Productions. (POV) 129 min.
