FREE FILM AND DISCUSSION SERIES
UNIVERSITY OF OTTAWA
This week at Cinema Academica:
The Anatomy of a Great Deception
Saturday, November 2, 2019, 7:00 p.m.
University of Ottawa, Faculty of Social Science, room 7035
(FSS 7035, 120 University, Ottawa, ON)
The Anatomy of a Great Deception is a quasi-political, spiritual docu-thriller following businessman-turned-filmmaker, David Hooper as he deals with the emotions of his own investigation into the events of 9/11. The fast pace and the filmmaker’s commentary on coping with the emotions involved in finding truth, sets the film apart. “Work on this film started in February 2011. Back then I was a regular guy trying to live the American dream, with three kids and a wife, who was pregnant with number four! It started with an innocent question about 9/11. And that lead to more innocent questions. And after a while, I completely changed my opinion of the official story of that day. That was a very hard time in my life. It felt like my world was turned upside down. I couldn’t stop researching. I was unemployed. And I was running out of savings. I tried talking about it, but felt like no one was listening. At the time, my wife didn’t even believe me … nor did my friends and family. No matter what I tried, nothing worked.”
