American Conspiracy: The Octopus Murders

An investigative journalist pursuing a political conspiracy known as the Octopus is found dead in his hotel room.

Decades later, new details emerge.

When journalist Danny Casolaro was found dead in a hotel bathtub, police ruled it a suicide.

But his family and colleagues believe he may have been murdered for investigating a conspiracy he called The Octopus - a hidden organisation connected to stolen government spy software, a string of unsolved murders and some of the biggest political scandals of the 20th century.

Years later, researcher Christian Hansen pushes to uncover the secrets behind Casolaro's death, and the story that killed him.

This four-part docuseries untangles a mystery decades in the making.

We Live Here: The Midwest

All families must confront challenges, every day.

But many also face a rising tide of discrimination and hate in their churches, schools and even their own neighbourhoods.

We Live Here: The Midwest profiles families who hope to stay in a part of the country they love, and where they have often established deep roots.

A trans/queer family with five children in Iowa must find a new community after being expelled from their church.

A gay black couple with a young daughter test the line of acceptance in Nebraska.

A lesbian couple homeschool their bullied son on a farm in Kansas.

A gay teacher in Ohio creates a safe space for LGBTQI+ students.

A couple in Minnesota struggles to rebuild their families following both of their transitions.

Meanwhile, Minnesota Representative and queer mother, Heather Keeler, brings LGBTQI+ rights to the political forefront despite ongoing death threats.

Fundamentally, the film captures a crucial time where anti-queer legislation and sentiment is rapidly multiplying across the USA, and the values of all midwestern families are put to the ultimate test.
