The Unknown Known

The Unknown Known

Directors: Errol Morris
USA
105 min
Docufest

Synopsis:
Dedicated to Roger Ebert, The Unknown Known offers a mesmerizing portrait of Donald Rumsfeld, the larger-than-life figure who served as George W. Bush’s Secretary of Defense and as the principal architect of the Iraq War. Rather than conducting a conventional interview, director Errol Morris has Rumsfeld perform and explain his “snowflakes” - the enormous archive of memos he wrote across almost fifty years. The memos provide a window into history - not as it actually happened, but as Rumsfeld wants us to see it.
