Description

Oscar-nominated director Joe Berlinger strips away the myths surrounding Boston ex-mobster and FBI informant James “Whitey” Bulger, getting past his mystique as the Robin Hood of South Boston. As Boston’s most notorious gangster, Bulger allegedly worked hand in hand with FBI agents, ratting out his rivals in exchange for protection. When his alliances fall apart he becomes a fugitive on the FBI’s most wanted list until he is caught in 2011. With last summer’s explosive trial as backdrop, filmmaker Joe Berlinger uses his unprecedented access to FBI agents, Massachusetts state police, victims, lawyers, gangsters, journalists and federal prosecutors to uncover shocking new allegations about Whitey’s criminal empire. In this powerful film Berlinger calls our notions of truth and justice into question. Hot Docs is honoured to welcome back two-time Emmy-winning filmmaker Berlinger, best known for his films Brother’s Keeper, Under African Skies, the Paradise Lost trilogy and Metallica: Some Kind of Monster.
