As Donald Trump felt the mounting pressure of Robert Mueller's investigation which seemed to be spiraling out of his control, the president reportedly blurted to his advisers, “Where’s my Roy Cohn” This plea to his deceased mentor became the title of the new documentary about the controversial 20th-century figure.
At the El Paso movie debut, Pulitzer-prize winning journalist Dave L. Marcus will reflect on the life of the man who wielded so much power, and will answer questions about growing up with his infamous cousin.

Roy Cohn was one of the most controversial and influential American men of the 20th Century. He was the ruthless lawyer and political power broker whose 28-year career ranged from acting as chief counsel to Senator Joseph McCarthy's Communist-hunting subcommittee to molding the career of a young Queens real estate developer named Donald Trump.
"In order to understand Donald Trump, you need to understand Roy Cohn. Cohn, the subject of the fascinating documentary 'Where's My Roy Cohn,' now playing in theatres across the country, was the New York lawyer who made his bones as Senator Joseph McCarthy's right hand man during the Army-McCarthy hearings of the 1950s. Cohn - who would go on to be Trump's personal lawyer in the 1980s - all but invented Trump's playbook, and director Matt Tyrnauer's film gives insight into the philosophies that govern the mind of our 45th President.
