Synopsis

Juan Pujol Garcia, self-made double agent, is the only person to have been decorated by both the Allies and the Axis for service during World War II. The man whom British intelligence code-named Garbo and Germans dubbed Arabel, fed false information to the Nazis and fabricated a network of phantom agents across Europe, while residing in the relative comfort of Lisbon himself. In this documentary thriller, director Edmon Roch interweaves fragments of propaganda footage, interviews with key players in Pujol’s life, and clips from Hollywood films to conjure forgotten and living memories, heroes and spies, secrets and lies.

Per Theater Chart: Ascent of The Descendants
