Scott Crow is an anarchist community organizer and writer based in Austin, TX. As co-founder of the Common Ground Collective, he worked with Common Ground co-founder Brandon Darby, who later became an informant for the FBI. "informant" chronicles the actions of Darby with commentary by Crow and others who describe the impact that Darby had on their lives.
Darby was known as a hero of radical activists organizing in New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, but later he allied himself with rightwing forces helping to entrap protestors at the 2008 Republican convention (depicted in the documentary Better This World). Participating in re-enactments in "informant" Darby opens up to explain his motives.
