Undercover is a documentary film starring Richard Bert, a Brooklyn man born and bred. Back in the 80's, Richard was working as an Undercover narcotics officer for the New York Police Department. His job was to infiltrate the crack infested underground, and find out where the drugs were coming from. But the problem with living your life behind a mask is that sooner or later, someone is going to see behind it, and discover who you really are. But this isn't just the story about Richard's escape and survival from deep undercover, it's also a story about what happened next, it's a story about one mans' journey to find his true self, his true spirit and his true purpose.
Richard is a story telling master and his tale is gripping, heart wrenching and life affirming. It turns out that for Richard, hiding his identity from some drug dealers was nothing compared what he was hiding from the rest of the world, and having a near death experience allowed him to see what was really important in life. For Richard, that realization took him all over the world and led him to where he is today, helping at-risk kids at an after school program in Brooklyn.
This film is very honest, and Richard took a big risk in exposing himself the way he does. It may result in him having to walk away from what is his greatest passion - and from kids that completely idolise him. But for Richard, he knows the importance of truth and the power of the message…and we all feel that his story needs to be shared and this film needs to be seen.
