FRONTLINE: My Brother's Bomber
For some 25 years, filmmaker Ken Dornstein (A Death in Tehran) has been haunted by the bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland - a terrorist act that killed 270 people, including his older brother David.
Now, in this emotional and suspenseful three-part serial, Dornstein sets out to find the men responsible for one of the worst attacks on Americans before 9/11. From the ruins and chaos of post-Qaddafi Libya, Dornstein hunts for clues to the identities and whereabouts of the suspects, who he tracks for almost five years across the Middle East and Europe. With each episode, Dornstein encounters new witnesses and unearths fresh evidence that brings him closer to the truth about what really happened.
My Brother's Bomber is a rare, real-life spy thriller, but also a timely reflection on the legacy of America's long war on terror and a lyrical meditation on loss, love, revenge, and the nature of obsession.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
