    Events of Interests: Panel Discussion on Government Classification System After Screening of ‘Secrecy’ (Oct. 14)

    SILVERDOCS Presents SECRECY
    Screening followed by panel discussion with the following special guests:

    Robb Moss – Director, SECRECY
    Peter Galison – Director, SECRECY
    Mike Levin – formerly with the National Security Agency
    Tom Blanton – Director of the National Security Archive at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.
    Ben Wizner – Attorney, ACLU

    The “classification universe” is invisible to most of us, yet the government’s production of classified secret documents involves millions of people. And government secrecy is growing, vastly outpacing the circulation of open information. In a single recent year, the US government classified five times the number of pages added to the Library of Congress; the cost is eight billion dollars a year–just to keep secrets secret. SECRECY explores the hidden world of national security policy by examining the many implications of secrecy, both for government and individuals. (note courtesy Sundance Film Festival)
