Where's My Roy Cohn?

“Flamboyant, terrifying, and pointedly timely” (NPR)

Those who think they know everything about Roy Cohn—one of the most controversial and influential American men of the 20th century—will find much that is new in this revealing documentary, which utilizes a great deal of material never publicly seen. Those with little knowledge of Cohn’s story will have their eyes opened to the sizeable impact he continues to have on American politics, despite being dead for decades. By showing how America’s current divisions are rooted in dark areas of our past, Where’s My Roy Cohn? offers an illuminating portrait of where we are today.
