Manufacturing the Threat is a feature-length documentary which examines a deeply disturbing episode in Canadian history, when an impoverished couple was coerced by undercover law enforcement agents into carrying out a terrorist bombing. Further, viewers learn that this case is far from unique in the context of Canadian intelligence. Shining a light into the murky world of police infiltration, incitement, and agent provocateurs, Manufacturing The Threat shows how Canada’s policing and national security agencies, granted additional powers after 9/11, routinely break laws with little to no accountability or oversight.
With the participation of: Amanda ‘Ana’ Korody and John ‘Omar’ Nuttall
Featuring: Jane Gerster, Steve Hewitt, Azeezah Kanji, Pamela Palmater, John Kingman Philipps, Alexandre Popovic, Michael Vonn, Reg Whitaker, Scott Wright
