A real-life thriller, (T)ERROR is the first documentary to place filmmakers on the ground during a live FBI counterterrorism sting operation. With unprecedented access to an active informant – Saeed “Shariff” Torres, a 63-year-old former Black Panther – viewers get an unfettered glimpse of the government’s counterterrorism tactics and the murky justifications behind them. (T)ERROR illuminates the fragile relationships between individual and surveillance state in modern America, and asks – Who is watching the watchers?
