The Unknown Known: Regular Priced Special Screening: Errol Morris in-person

The Unknown Known: Regular Priced Special Screening: Errol Morris in-person Tickets.  Please purchase tickets in advance.  This event, with the legendary Errol Morris in person, is likely to sell out.

In The Unknown Known, Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris (The Fog of War) offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, one of the key architects of the Iraq War, and a larger-than-life character who provoked equal levels of fury and adulation from the American public.

Rather than conducting a conventional interview, Morris has Rumsfeld perform and expound on his “snowflakes,” tens of thousands of memos (many never previously published) he composed as a congressman and as an advisor to four different presidents, twice as Secretary of Defense. These memos provide a window onto history—not history as it actually happened, but history as Rumsfeld wants us to see it. Morris makes plain that Rumsfeld’s “snowflakes”—whether intended to elucidate, rationalize, obfuscate, or control history—are contradicted by the facts. The Unknown Known is an illumination of the mystery of Donald Rumsfeld, an unknown known.

Special Screening

Oscar-winning filmmaker Errol Morris (The Fog of War) will be at the Coolidge in person discussing his new film The Unknown Known.

We'll try to Meetup before the film to get in line for seating, and decide on an after-film discussion location as the event draws closer.

See you at the movie,

John

    Quite a film and a remarkable look at power. Morris was fascinating even if the skype connection was poor. Great conversation with the group at dinner!

    That was fun, even if the Skype audio was hard to hear. Missed seeing you meetup folks, though.

    Hi. I'm so sorry to cancel the last minute but the bus I was going to take has broken down due to a flat tire and I don't think I will be able to make it.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
