    In 2005, Darby became an overnight hero when he traveled to Katrina-devastated New Orleans and braved toxic floodwaters to rescue a stranded friend. Soon after, he co-founded Common Ground, a successful grassroots relief organization. But over the next few years, he began hiding a shocking secret: he was an FBI informant.

    REACTIONS:

    "Mesmerizing and Timely! Informant is riveting as it slowly assembles a damning profile of its subject." - Ernest Hardy, Village Voice

    "Oozes with espionage enigma." - Michael Atkinson, Time Out New York

    “An absorbing puzzle with the potential to intrigue viewers all along the political spectrum.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety

    “A kind of ‘Fog of War’ for the age of Occupy” - Anthony Kaufman, Indiewire

    "An examination of the paranoia-filled American political divide. An unsettling portrait of a charismatic true believer, whose most consistent belief is that he’s the hero of a grand narrative." - Liam Lacey, The Globe and Mail

    “A film that is thrilling from beginning to end, that innovates documentary form, that takes a small corner of America and looks at our widest issues. For its Rashomon-like investigation of a terrorist crime that did or didn’t happen, the Grand Jury Prize goes to Informant.” - DOC NYC Jury Statement

    "Smartly gives all sides of the story their chance to speak, creating an almost Rashomon-like viewing experience where we're encouraged to decide the truth on our own." - Kalvin Henely, Slant
