IRISH PREMIERE

Whitey is a part courtroom drama and part telling exposé of the murky world where undercover FBI agents meet high-level criminals.

Gaining impressive access to lawyers, investigators, victims and gangsters, Emmy-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger uses famous Irish-American criminal ‘Whitey’ Bulger’s recent trial as an opportunity to explore corruption in law enforcement and scrutinise the myth around Bulger. Berlinger deftly handles complex and often contradictory evidence to create a riveting and frightening picture of Bulger’s reign and how exactly he survived for so long. 

This film is screening as part of the IFI Stranger Than Fiction Documentary Film Festival (September 25th – 28th 2014).

130 minutes, u.s.a., 2014, colour/b&w, d-cinema
