JFK: A President Betrayed

Documentary | 2013

Synopsis

Narrated by Academy Award winner Morgan Freeman, JFK: A President Betrayed uncovers new evidence that reveals how John F. Kennedy, despite intense pressure, boldly reversed U.S. government policy to embark on secret back-channel peace efforts with America’s sworn enemies. The effect is shocking as the doc exposes facts largely unknown to the general public, including those that demonstrate how Kennedy was subverted by his own government.

Featuring new, probing interviews with Kennedy and Khrushchev staffers, eyewitnesses and experts, JFK: A President Betrayed is a meticulously well-researched portrait of an embattled president at the height of the Cold War and considers how the world might be different had he lived to serve a second term.
