British scholar Matthew Alford spent more than two years digging into the mysterious disappearance (a.k.a. apparent CIA assassination) of scriptwriter Gary DeVore, who had been investigating Bush Crime Family drug smuggling and other scandals relating to the US invasion of Panama. Now a brand-new documentary film recounts Alford’s investigation: The Writer With No Hands. Featuring some big film industry names including the legendary Haskell Wexler, it’s making the film festival circuit and getting good reviews.
