Dallas VideoFest 27 wil present The Writer with No Hands‚Äč. In this highly accessible and innovative micro-budget documentary, Dr. Matthew Alford aims to expose government interference in Hollywood movies by proving an acclaimed screenwriter was murdered.

The writer was working on a controversial script about real-life CIA bank jobs when he disappeared. Several months later his body was found in a California aqueduct - minus both his hands. Following years of research, Alford decides to visit L.A to prove it was an assassination. He persuades a filmmaker to join him and record the investigation.

The problem is that - just like the film industry Alford is trying to expose - the director has his own agenda, and when finally confronted about this he is forced to admit his intentions and turn the lens on himself.
