This film traces my harrowing experience in seeking the truth about the death of my father, Frank Olson, who died in November of 1953 after falling from a hotel window in New York City. At the time of his death the government told the family only that Frank had had an “accident.” Twenty-two years later the US government revealed (without notifying the Olson family) that an unnamed scientist had died from a fall from a New York hotel window after having been secretly and unwittingly drugged with LSD by the CIA. Though this revelation ultimately resulted in the only Presidential apology ever made to a family in the Oval Office, this version of the story also turned out to be untrue. Frank Olson did not die as the result of an accident, nor was he an LSD suicide. He was the victim of a ghastly murder. “Code Name Artichoke” traces the long journey of a son to discover the truth about what happened his father, CIA scientist Frank Olson.
