WHITEY: United States of America v. James J. Bulger
is a sweeping and revelatory documentary film that follows the trial of the infamous gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, using the courtroom action as a springboard to examine accusations of multi-faceted corruption within our nation’s law enforcement and legal systems.

 

Throughout this violent and sordid story, WHITEY: United States of America v. James J. Bulger returns to the central question of the nature of Whitey’s relationship with law enforcement, a complex exploration of a multi-faceted story. Was Bulger an informant, as everyone believes, or, as Bulger’s lawyers claim, is there actual proof that this claim is yet more misinformation and obfuscation by the government in an attempt to protect itself and preserve its convictions?

Directed by Joe Berlinger. Produced by Joe Berlinger, Caroline Suh.

Cinematography by Robert Richman, Etienne Sauret.

This Magnolia Pictures documentary will be released in Los Angeles and New York on June 27 and on VOD, followed by a national roll-out.
