About:
A personal investigation of uncomfortable family connections to a notorious dictator.

The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
Journalist Clarice Gargard is on a mission to discover the truth about her semi-estranged yet beloved father: was he a moral, heroic man? Or did he knowingly abet a murderous dictator? Disentangling the web of stories surrounding her father’s ties to ex-Liberian president Charles Taylor, Clarice and director Shamira Raphaëla uncover increasingly sinister secrets. The result is a thought-provoking tale that poses the question: how much truth is too much?
