American Experience presents OKLAHOMA CITY
Directed by Barak Goodman
FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE – On April 19, 1995, Timothy McVeigh, a former soldier deeply influenced by the literature and ideas of the radical right, committed the deadliest act of domestic terrorism in our nation’s history, the Murrah Building bombing. With a virulent strain of anti-government anger still with us, the film is both a cautionary tale and an extremely timely warning.
Preceding OKLAHOMA CITY will be the American Experience short THE TURNER DIARIES, which examines a dangerous book with a unique legacy of directly inspiring acts of terror and violence since its publication in the late 70s.
