2012 • Canada • Directed by Christopher MacBride
When two young filmmakers select a crazed conspiracy theorist as the subject of their new work, the task seems simple enough. Befriend him, gain his trust and let his theories speak for themselves. Despite his street preaching their subject proves to be an articulate and intelligent man: listen long enough and his arguments even start to make a certain sort of sense. It's enough to make you wonder if maybe, somewhere, there's some basis to what he's saying. And then he simply disappears. While one of the filmmaking duo is prepared to walk away, the other becomes obsessed. This should not be possible. People do not just disappear. Not unless someone wants them to. What if he was correct? What if he was on the verge of exposing some greater scheme? And what if he was taken? And so begins an obsessive effort to reconstruct his work, an effort that points the duo to a high powered retreat and networking organisation for the political and business elite.
