The Searchers Seeks the Truth About JFK’s Assassination

October 26 may, on the surface, appear to be just a regular Thursday in Rhode Island. But under the surface there is something more going on — something BIG. On this day, the JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, which President George H.W. Bush signed into law back in 1992, will trigger a clause that will require the remaining 3,600 documents held mostly by the FBI and CIA to be released.

Writer/Director Randolph “Randy” Benson and his team of JFK researchers have spent the better part of 14 years compiling recently declassified documents, archival footage and never-before-seen interviews as part of a documentary that will be screening at the Avon Cinema on Thayer Street on October 19 called The Searchers.

Benson’s work has garnered numerous awards, most notably the Academy Award for Best Student Documentary at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Academy Awards. His work has also been featured at numerous film festivals around the world and has garnered multiple awards.

The screening, which is sponsored by the Rhode Island-based radio interview show, SHADOWCITIZEN, will also have a Q and A session after the screening with writer/director Randy Branson and Rex Bradford, founder of historymatters.com and vice president of the Assassination Archives and Research Center, an organization that has been collecting and disseminating information regarding the JFK assassination since 1984.

This is a documentary you will not want to miss — the FBI and CIA are petitioning to prevent the release of this information at this moment.

You can find out more information about the documentary and the work being done on this subject at thesearchersfilm.com and aarclibrary.org. Information on the sponsor of this event, SHADOWCITIZEN, can be found at shadowcitizen.online. Those attending the screening on October 19 can save $5 on their ticket by using a secret password “grassy knoll” at the box office.
