Freedom of Information in Reverse: A Discussion of SILENCED

Freedom of Information in Reverse: A Discussion of SILENCED

With Thomas Drake, William Binney, Jesselyn Radack, James Spione
Presented by Max Hoppenstedt
Moderated by Sarah Harrison

 

Screening/discussion presented in cooperation with MOTHERBOARD.

 

In the new documentary SILENCED, director James Spione portrays the consequences of whistleblowing, how US Intelligence are gathering information and in how far our awareness of it has changed since 9/11 and in the “Post-Snowden Era". In interviews, media clips and carefully staged documentary re-enactments, we follow the cases of the prominent whistleblowers John Kiriakou (formerly CIA), Thomas Drake (formerly NSA) and Jesselyn Radack (lawyer and former ethics consultant to the American Department of Justice).
