How Adam Curtis' film "Bitter Lake" will change everything you believe about news

The acclaimed British documentary filmmaker has released his latest film in unusual, forward-thinking circumstances.

BITTER LAKE is an epic documentary about the history of the West’s involvement in Afghanistan, mostly assembled from a 26 terabyte archive of unused footage shot for BBC News. Previously sitting on videotapes in cupboards in foreign outposts, it was assiduously collected by a BBC camera operator working in Afghanistan and passed along to Curtis.
