Friday Night at the Meaningful Movies: "Better this World"

The story of Bradley Crowder and David McKay, who were accused of intending to firebomb the 2008 Republican National Convention, is a dramatic tale of idealism, loyalty, crime and betrayal. "Better this World" follows the radicalization of these boyhood friends from Midland, Texas, under the tutelage of revolutionary activist Brandon Darby. The results: eight homemade bombs, multiple domestic terrorism charges and a highstakes entrapment defense hinging on the actions of a controversial FBI informant.
"Better this World" goes to the heart of the War on Terror and its impact on civil liberties and political dissent in post-9/11 America.
Screened in collaboration with the award-winning series POV. A panel discussion with the ACLU of Washington staff follows the film.
