Wondering why times are missing?

1971

In March of 1971, eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI field office outside of Philadelphia, Pa. The group, calling itself the Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI, stole every single file in the office and started mailing them to newsrooms around the country. That action resulted in the revelation of COINTELPRO, J. Edgar Hoover's illegal domestic surveillance program. Finally, the story of how it all went down—and who was behind it—is revealed in director Johanna Hamilton's searing portrait of still timely (hello, Edward Snowden) political rebellion. 79 minutes Unrated.
