This intense thriller examines the motives of an eco-terrorist through media reporting. Obsessed with the pollution of the world’s water supply, the mastermind behind deadly attacks on the EPA and the White House takes a hostage and grants a young journalist the interview of a lifetime. While justifying his actions on camera, a taut game of cat and mouse ensues, leading to a shocking and surprising conclusion. For mature audiences only, due to violent content and strong language.
Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $7 for non-Kent State students, children under 17 and senior citizens. All Kent State students are admitted free of charge with current student ID. Tickets may be obtained beginning Monday, Feb. 3.
