Should a government keep secrets in order to protect its citizens? Or does the simple act of withholding information lead to a world of eroding civil liberties and corruption? Featuring interviews with scholars and former security officials, Harvard professors Peter Galison and Robb Moss have crafted a well-executed and comprehensive film that asks these tough questions and goes behind the scenes of America’s national security apparatus. Far from a conspiracy film about the dangers of government secrets or a political statement about the need for regime change, this well-balanced film straddles the philosophical divide and allows viewers to see all sides of the argument.
