In present day Miami, Colin Mathers follows a hot lead to tie up his feature story and reveal new graphic details behind closed doors in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. His "lead" is a man with the story of a lifetime but also has much more "intelligence" than Collin had ever imagined. And things get personal. The background of this politically-charged story is based on true historical events. Written by
I saw this at the 2006 Palm Springs International Festival of Short Films and it certainly has a the look of a big budget feature length film. A young brash investigative reporter working on a story about Guantanamo Bay is meeting in a café with a time conscious man in his 80's who was once an intelligence officer for the Nazi's during WWII. It turns out the interviewee has done more background research on the interviewer than the other way around. A flashback to the end of the war brings clues us in on the old man's background and mission. This is kind of like a Twilight Zone or Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode. Allen Martinez directs and edits a story by Timothy Kernc. Eric Trageser is the cinematographer. Milo Ventimiglia and Bill Bolender star. This is very well done and I would give it a 9.0 out of 10.
