Help Us Find Sunil Tripathi
directed by Neal Broffman
USA, 2014, English, 75 minutes
A family's search for their missing son converges with the hunt for Boston Marathon bombing suspects in this film about truth and community in the age of social media. While in the throes of depression, Brown University student Sunil Tripathi walked out of his Providence apartment and disappeared into the cold Rhode Island night. In a desperate search to find him, his family launched a national social media movement that united a community dedicated to finding him. The family's investigation exploded into a virtual confrontation with e-vigilantes, citizen journalists, and traditional media eager to feed their insatiable hunger for breaking news in the wake of the Boston bombings.
