KILL THE MESSENGER

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb. The film takes place in the mid 1990s, when Webb uncovered the CIA’s past role in importing huge amounts of cocaine into the United States that was aggressively sold in ghettos across the country to raise money for the Nicaraguan Contras rebel army.





Despite enormous pressure not to, Webb chose to pursue the story and went public with his evidence, publishing the series “Dark Alliance.” As a result he experienced a vicious smear campaign fueled by the CIA. At that point Webb found himself defending his integrity, his family, and his life.







Starring Jeremy Renner, Ray Liotta, Michael Sheen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Barry Pepper and Paz Vega. Directed by Michael Cuesta.



“Kill The Messenger” is released and distributed by Captive Cinema.
