On June 5, 1968, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was slain in Los Angeles at the Ambassador Hotel. Charged with the assassination is Sirhan Sirhan, a 24 year old Palestinian whose notebooks repeatedly declared "RFK Must Die
". But Sirhan has never been able to remember the shooting and investigatory oversights leave many questions unanswered...
A world authority on hypnosis Dr Herbert Spiegel believes he was hypnotically programmed to kill Kennedy. Not one witness saw Sirhan's gun an inch from Kennedy's right ear, suggesting a second gunman was involved. New audio evidence also proves at least ten shots were fired that night - Sirhan's gun only held eight and newly discovered film and photographs appear to show three senior CIA operatives at the crime scene, suggesting the CIA was behind the assassination.
Writer-director Shane O'Sullivan, highly sceptical of the official report, conducted his own exhaustive investigation. Through exclusive interviews with eyewitnesses, investigators and survivors of the assassination as well as rare archival footage and a wealth of expert testimony, this disturbing documentary sheds new light on the murder of one of America's most beloved politicians.
Today. Sirhan is still in the same California prison as Charles Manson, with no imminent hope of parole. This new feature documentary thoroughly investigates one of America's most bizarre and enduring murder mysteries.
