Film Journal International talks to director Errol Morris about his complex documentary The Unknown Known, which initially sought out to humanize former defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld and maybe seek out some justifications for the Iraq War. Says Morris, "You look for depth, you look for someone connected to history, and you find nothing. You find this infernal grin. Having made this film, I would have to say I know less about why we went to Iraq than I did going into it. And I think there's something very important to be learned from that."

Realscreen has announced that director Sebastian Junger plans to self-distribute his latest documentary, Korengal--a sequel to his Oscar-nominated Restrepo. The film will be in NYC theaters in May and on VOD in September. “We’re going to kind of use the Louis C.K. model,” Junger says. “He just bypassed the whole power structure in media, which is pretty amazing, so that’s what we’re going to try and do. Documentaries don’t get the opportunity to do that that often, but I think that we can because we have an enormous fan base from Restrepo. So we’re in a great position to leverage that."
