NEW VIEWS Documentaries & Dialogue – A Good American

Presented in collaboration with Aspen Film. Generously underwritten by Leonard Lauder and Jane and Michael Eisner.

“A Good American proves a detailed and trenchant depiction of a passage of U.S. history Americans should be intimately aware of. Sadly, at this point in time, scarce few of them are.” – Medium

A codebreaker genius, a revolutionary surveillance program and corruption across the board of NSA. Against this backdrop unfolds the feature documentary A Good American. The film tells the story of Bill Binney and his program ThinThread and how this perfect alternative to mass surveillance got ditched by NSA for money – 3 weeks prior to 9/11.

Former NSA intelligence official and film subject Bill Binney will be featured in a post-screening discussion.
