Synopsis
In 1971, a group of activists broke into FBI offices and made off with a number of secret files in order to draw attention to breaches of civil rights and freedoms by the institution. The film combines archival footage and real testimony by the activists at the time, and emphasizes the similarities between this case and the WikiLeaks and NSA scandals.

Biography

On March, 8 1971 eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania, a town just outside Philadelphia, took hundreds of secret files, and shared them with the public. In doing so, they uncovered the FBI’s vast and illegal regime of spying and intimidations of Americans exercising their First Amendment rights.
