Wormwood trailer: Errol Morris’ Netflix original tackles CIA secrets
Netflix has released the trailer for Wormwood, the latest work from documentary filmmaker Errol Morris, which you can check out in the player below! Wormwood will be released on December 15 on Netfilx.
The streaming service hesitates to call the work a film or a tv series, instead opting for the label “A Netflix original story told in six chapters.” Wormwood explores the limits of knowledge about the past and the lengths we’ll go in our search for the truth. A twisting, evolving story of one man’s sixty-year quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death. Combining a virtuosic performance by Peter Sarsgaard (Jarhead, Green Lantern) with Morris’ legendary interview style, Wormwood examines this case from every possible angle, bringing the viewer face-to-face with some of the United States’ darkest secrets. Wormwood sets a new standard for nonfiction filmmaking and finds Morris working on his grandest canvas yet.
Wormwood is produced in association with Fourth Floor Productions and Moxie Pictures.
