THURSDAY, APRIL 2nd at 7pm 

181 Lincoln Place, Performance Space



On March 8, 1971, a group of activists calling themselves The Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI, broke into a small FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, took every file, and shared them with the American public. These actions exposed COINTELPRO, the FBI's illegal surveillance program that involved the intimidation of law-abiding Americans and helped lead to the country's first Congressional investigation of U.S. intelligence agencies. Never caught, forty-four years later, these everyday Americans - parents, teachers and citizens - publicly reveal themselves for the first time and share their story in the documentary 1971.


Q+A after the show with Director Johanna Hamilton
