Brother’s Keeper

Special retrospective screening with filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky in person!

Tue, Sept 8 – SOLD OUT

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary at Sundance and named Best Documentary of the year by the New York Film Critics Circle, the National Board of Review and the Directors Guild of America, BROTHER’S KEEPER delves into the case of Delbert Ward, a semi-literate, elderly farmer from upstate New York who was sent to trial on suspicion of killing his brother. Calling it “the year’s best documentary,” Roger Ebert wrote that the film “has an impact and immediacy that most fiction films can only envy.”

Joe Berlinger’s new documentary CRUDE, an examination of the infamous $27 billion “Amazon Chernobyl” suit against Chevron, opens at IFC Center on September 9.
