Truth is always stranger than fiction. There couldn’t be a more perfect description for the compelling and gripping story highlighted in Honest Man, a feature length documentary film released today through our Featured Content program and is available here.
Honest Man chronicles the life of R. Budd Dwyer and explores the scandal, politics and corruption that lead to Dwyers rise to political power, his downfall and scandalous trial that subsequently led to a very public and uncensored suicide on television stations worldwide.
Honest Man reveals a story that has remained untold for over 24 years and we are honored to be able to help promote and distribute this independently made, featured length story through BitTorrent and µTorrent. The film features exclusive new interviews, including William Smith, the man whose testimony convicted Dwyer, and Dwyer’s widow Joanne–her last interview before her death in 2009.
