The Informant!

Copyright ©Warner Bros Pictures

What was Mark Whitacre thinking? A rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Whitacre suddenly turns whistleblower. Even as he exposes his company’s multi-national price-fixing conspiracy to the FBI, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion. But before all that can happen, the FBI needs evidence, so Whitacre eagerly agrees to wear a wire and carry a hidden tape recorder in his briefcase, imagining himself as a kind of de facto secret agent. Unfortunately for the FBI, their lead witness hasn’t been quite so forthcoming about helping himself to the corporate coffers. Whitacre’s ever-changing account frustrates the agents and threatens the case against ADM as it becomes almost impossible to decipher what is real and what is the product of Whitacre’s rambling imagination. The film is based on the true story of the highest-ranking corporate whistleblower in U.S. history.

The Campbell Brothers perform December 12 Sun Valley Opera House

The Sun Valley Center for the Arts Presents:
The Campbell Brothers
Saturday, December 12 at 7:30pm
Sun Valley Opera House
$20 / $30 nonmembers
The Campbell Brothers present “Sacred Steel”: African American gospel music with electric steel guitar accompanying the vocals. This tradition is just now emerging from the House of God Keith Dominion Church, where for sixty years it has been an integral part of worship. As the music moves from sanctuary to concert hall-the group has appeared at the Hollywood Bowl, the Kennedy Center and the Brooklyn Academy of Music-secular audiences are able to appreciate a performance both devotional and rocking. The Campbell Brothers present a rich variety of material from the African American Holiness-Pentecostal repertoire with a new twist: the growling, wailing, shouting, singing and swinging voice of the steel guitar, played as you have never heard it played before.
A part of the 2009/2010 Winter Performance Series, sponsored by Gail and Jack Thornton.

Tickets available ONLY through the Sun Valley Center for the Arts.
