Dir. Amir Bar-Lev
Pat Tillman’s family comes forward to tell the real story about what happened on April 22, 2004, in Afghanistan when the pro football player-turned-U.S. soldier was killed by friendly fire and not the Taliban, as first reported. Amir Bar-Lev’s documentary pieces together the Tillmans’ search for the truth, how they exposed a military cover-up that led to top-ranking officers and called to the carpet the likes of Donald Rumsfeld.
“’THE TILLMAN STORY’ IS FEROCIOUS FILMMAKING, but it wouldn’t have half the force it does if the director didn’t also get at the complicated man Pat Tillman was.”
