In March of 1971, a break-in occurred at an FBI field office in Media, PA, that resulted in the theft of every single document contained within it. The true nature of what was discovered within those files would soon prove to be more shocking than the crime itself. Finally, the story of how it all went down is revealed in director Johanna Hamilton’s searing portrait of past events that echo into our own present
Come see the movie, and join us afterwards at Asian Bistro for a conversation with Johanna Hamilton.

We are pleased that Johanna Hamilton has agreed to join us for conversation after the film at Asian Bistro (around the corner from AFI). She is deeply concerned about mass surveillance by the NSA, and continued FBI monitoring and disruption of peace and justice groups. Let’s discuss with her how her film can illuminate and educate. It will be a fascinating discussion!
