I followed that accident closely at the time. Speed brakes out with LNAV taking the airplane wildly outside protected airspace. Sounds like someone is trying to make a buck or two. The Colombian investigation, aided by the NTSB, did a sterling job. I wrote and article about it for the ALPA magazine a year, or so, later.

Should this not be more accurately titled "New theory on factor/s that may have contributed to the AA965 accident" ?

I'll be surprised if anything that has emerged 25 years down the line can be categorised as "evidence".

I found out some more about the "documentary" film. It's a theory about contaminated cabin air that caused the crew to be impaired.

Yes, the director/producer, a former BA pilot, has made a number of previous films on the same theme.
