SPOTLIGHT

THE NEWBURGH STING

Directed by Kate Davis and David Heilbroner
FEATURE DOCUMENTARY 80 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE NEWBURGH STING
Through an absorbing, insider look at the case of the "Newburgh Four," The Newburgh Sting reveals the FBI’s role in targeting Muslim communities in poor neighborhoods and luring believers into committing acts of terrorism. David Heilbroner & Kate Davis’ (Southern Comfort) shocking and galvanizing exposé dissects the story of the four men arrested in 2009 for a plan to bomb Jewish centers in the Bronx. Led by a suspicious Pakistani businessman with questionable motives, the film exposes how these men—over the course of a year—went from being small-time criminals in poverty-stricken Newburgh to high-level national security threats. With incredible footage gathered from hidden cameras, directors Heilbroner and Davis investigate just what homegrown terrorism means.
