Winner of a Special Jury prize at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, (T)error is the first documentary to place filmmakers on the ground during an active FBI counterterrorism sting operation. Through the perspective of “Shariff”, a 63-year-old black revolutionary turned informant, viewers get an unfiltered glimpse of the government’s counterterrorism tactics and the murky justifications behind them, exposing the details of what agents are forced to endure to carry out their dubious missions, all in the name of an increasingly vague cause. As we get to know “Shariff,” we begin to question his motives as he is drawn deeper into the world of uncertain accusations and blame being played out in the name of national security. Tension filled, stark and controversial, (T)error illuminates the fragile relationships between the individual and America’s surveillance state, and asks who is watching the watchers.
