Cross' previous film SEVERE VISIBILITY, which he directed, wrote and starred in tells the story of a US Army major’s life that hangs in the balance when he discovers evidence that the government’s official version of the Pentagon disaster on September 11, 2001 is a deception. Although both films OPERATION TERROR and Severe Visibility have the same subject mater of 9/11 both films are completely different, Cross explained. "SEVERE VISIBILITY tells the story of one very patriotic man's struggle to deal with the events of 9/11 while OPERATION TERROR details the planning stages of that day from a completely different viewpoint. I know one thing for certain, OPERATION TERROR will make people think. This film is not a lightweight by any stretch of the imagination."
OPERATION TERROR, written by Art Olivier, has Paul Cross once again directing and acting in the same film. This time Cross plays the role of George Poole an aeronautics engineer who becomes suspicious when he is recruited by a government agency to develop peculiar drone planes for a secret mission.
"It's a honor to be included in the impressive lineup of films that are being presented at the Riverside International Film Festival," Cross stated. "I'm looking forward to seeing as many of these films as I can."
