A film by Jamie Meltzer

A gripping portrait of Brandon Darby, an activist turned FBI informant who has been alternately vilified and deified. Darby became an overnight hero when he traveled to Katrina-devastated New Orleans to rescue a friend stranded in the Ninth Ward. Soon after, he co-founded Common Ground, a grassroots relief organization. But he began hiding a shocking secret. After two protesters were arrested at the 2008 Republican National Convention, Darby revealed he had been instrumental in the indictment as an FBI informant.

The only film with access to Darby since his public confession, Informant meticulously constructs a picture of his life through interviews and tense reenactments.
