The movie could not be more timely, focusing on whistleblowers Michael DeKort, Thomas Drake, Frank Gayl, and Thomas Tamm,  with interviews with leading journalists and activists like Dana Priest, Jane Mayer, Daniel Ellsberg, and Jessalyn Radack.  As NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake puts it, "Speaking truth to power is now a criminal act."  Click here for a video movie trailer.

We plan to show more movies -- help us decide which ones when you join us on Tuesday!  Possibilities include "The Lives of Others," "Top Secret America," "The Central Park Five," and others.
