Better This World
Tuesday, August 30, 2011
Filmmakers Katie Galloway and Kelly Duane de la Vega discuss their documentary “Better This World,” about two boyhood friends from Midland, Texas, who fall under the sway of a charismatic revolutionary. At the 2008 Republican Convention the "Texas Two" cross a line that radically changes their lives. The result: eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges and a high stakes entrapment defense hinging on the actions of a controversial FBI informant. The film is a close look at the War on Terror and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America. "Better This World" airs on September 6 on PBS.
