OSA Hosts Surveillance Film Festival

Open Society Archives hosts Surveillance. Secret Police Film Festival, featuring 16 films from five former communist countries. The festival runs through December 2. 

The retrospective film program includes an international selection of training films, newsreels and operative films produced by Communist Secret Police 1962-1989. The program explores how the secret police imagined and managed their surveillance activities and what they were actually seeing while watching. Also in the program are creative documentary films composed of and built around secret police surveillance films.
