Through his now classic documentary investigations such as The Thin Blue Line and The Fog of War, Errol Morris established himself as a filmmaker committed to seeking the truth, whether proving the innocence of a wrongfully committed man or interrogating Robert McNamara, the architect of the Vietnam War. Morris comes to CHF with his new book The Ashtray, inspired by a philosophical debate over the nature of reality, to share his worldview and urge all of us to establish and support the truth, especially at this moment when its very existence appears under siege in so many ways. No Morris fan should miss this event.
