Chris Kelly’s Modern Cinema Festival

  • October 13, 2019 - 11:30am

In 2009, the Senate Intelligence Committee opened an investigation into the CIA’s practices in the aftermath of the September 11 attacks. What followed was a political battle of wills, both to uncover the truth and to make the findings public. This little-known chapter of recent American history is brought to crackling life by writer-director Scott Z. Burns (CONTAGION, THE INFORMANT) and an ace cast that includes Adam Driver as the lead investigator, Jon Hamm as White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and a brilliant, nearly unrecognizable Annette Bening as Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Modern Cinema returns, hosted by Christopher Kelly in partnership with Fortress Presents.
