What does the U.S. government keep hidden from its citizens? This documentary explores the nation’s increasing reliance on secret information, and its potential to prevent danger–or keep the public in the dark about the true actions of its leaders.Relentless in its pursuit of the unvarnished truth, SECRECY shines a penetrating light into the dark, unseen world of government secrecy. This intelligent film takes measure of the tension between security and freedom, investigating whether press reports led to the death of American soldiers as well as exploring if secrecy led to horrendous human rights abuses in the War on Terror.Through revealing interviews with a fascinating host of characters secrecy-adverse reporters; former CIA agents who experienced firsthand the deleterious effects of airing classified information; military attorneys defending accused terrorists; and everyday citizens whose lives have been touched by the government s most closely guarded programs SECRECY attempts to understand what degree of openness and transparency a democracy demands.From the Manhattan Project to Abu Ghraib, habeas corpus to Osama bin Laden, directors Peter Galison and Robb Moss brilliantly dissect the way the power and allure of secrecy affects the course of history.
