The May 1, 2011 raid on Abbottabad, Pakistan that culminated in the killing of Osama bin Laden took 40 minutes. The CIAâs hunt for bin Laden took two decades. An official selection of the 2013 Sundance Film FestivalÂ®, ManhuntÂ® tells the remarkable true story of the nearly 20-year pursuit of the worldâs most notorious terrorist. Directed by EmmyÂ®-nominee Greg Barker, the film features testimony and recollections â some shared for the first time â from top CIA officers, many of them women, who labored to eliminate bin Ladenâs terrorist organization and eventually the man himself. Based on the book âManhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden â from 9/11 to Abbottabadâ by Peter Bergen, this documentary feature is a real-life spy thriller that reveals behind-the-scenes accounts from CIA analysts, targeters and operatives, who testify to the disagreements, frustrations, tragedies and triumphs that make up this fascinating yet painful chapter in American military and political history. How the pieces of this ever-changing puzzle come together â of Osama bin Laden, al-Qaeda, and their violent determination to strike the United States â is the backbone of the story.
