Informant, winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Doc NYC Festival, is the story of radical activist-turned FBI informant Brandon Darby. Darby became an overnight hero in 2005 when he braved toxic flood waters in Katrina-devastated New Orleans to rescue a friend stranded in the Ninth Ward. But years later, the co-founder of grassroots relief organization Common Ground was vilified after revealing he was an FBI informant who had been instrumental in the indictment of two protesters at the 2008 Republican National Convention. Informant bows in theaters on September 13. Check out the new trailer:
