A broad survey across genre, format, and time period, followed by a panel discussion.
With the recent revelation of NSA's domestic spying, there has been increased interest in the issue of surveillance. From lighthearted celebrity stalking and a restored 16mm art-film premiere to Soviet-era CIA instructional films, rare footage of occupied Tibet, and incriminating footage from Libya, the afternoon's surveillance-themed presentation for World Day for Audiovisual Heritage will examine the cultural, political, and historical importance of the theme.
This event is free and open to the public with admission to Brooklyn Historical Society
(BHS suggests a contribution of $10 for adults, $6 for seniors and teachers at the door, and $0 for students are free with a valid ID)
