A Dark Truth

Preview by Jack Foley

ACADEMY Award® nominee Andy Garcia (Best Supporting Actor, Godfather: Part III, 1991), Golden Globe® nominee Eva Longoria (Best Actress in a Musical/Comedy, Desperate Housewives, 2006) and Academy Award® winner Forest Whitaker (Best Actor, The Last King of Scotland, 2007), star in the action-packed environmental thriller A Dark Truth, available on DVD May 13 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Garcia is the thinking man’s action hero in this intense and thought-provoking tale. The film follows Jack (Garcia), a former CIA agent-turned-political talk show host who descends into the treacherous jungles of Ecuador to rescue a team of environmental activists (Whitaker and Longoria) caught up in the criminal corporate cover-up of a violent local massacre.

Written and directed by Damian Lee (Sacrifice), winner of the 2012 Best Director Award at the Boston Film Festival for his work on the film, A Dark Truth is a timely thriller about the ever-increasing depletion of earth’s natural resource of water and the heroic men and women fighting to protect it.

Co-starring Kim Coates (Resident Evil: Afterlife) and Deborah Kara Unger (The Game), the film is packed with action sequences and nail-biting suspense.

Exclusive to the DVD is Behind the Truth, a behind-the-scenes featurette with cast and crew as they share inspirations and experiences making the film.


In the jungles of Ecuador, blood taints the waters. A multi-national conglomerate’s unholy alliance with a bloodthirsty military regime has resulted in a massacre.

Only the rebel Francisco Franco (Whitaker) and his determined wife Mia (Longoria) can prove the truth. To settle a personal debt, former CIA agent Jack Begosian (Garcia) takes on the freelance assignment to rescue Francisco and risks everything in a brutal battle to expose the cover-up.
