Conspiracy theory spirals into deadly obsession in this documentary that trails Minnesotan veteran-turned-filmmaker David Crowley. In January 2015, Crowley and his family were found dead in their Apple Valley home. Their deaths caused many conspiracy theorists to surmise that the government had intervened due to the content of his in-progress film Gray State, while investigators reported murder-suicide. 2017, DCP, 93 minutes.

After this pre-release screening, join director Erik Nelson, investigative reporter Tom Lyden of Fox 9 News, and writer Alec Wilkinson of the New Yorker (via Skype) for a discussion mediated by Deirdre Haj, director of Full Frame Documentary Film Festival.
