1971 at PhilaMOCA
UPDATE: ADDITIONAL SCREENING ANNOUNCED FOR SATURDAY, MARCH 28!

PhilaMOCA hosts acclaimed documentary on the 1971 Media, PA FBI break in with cast and crew members in attendance!

On March 8th, 1971, eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI office in Media, PA.  Calling themselves the Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI, they removed every file in the office.  Mailed anonymously, the stolen documents started to show up in newsrooms.  The heist yielded a trove of damning evidence.  The most significant revelation was COINTELPRO, a controversial, secret, illegal surveillance program overseen by lifelong Bureau director J. Edgar Hoover.  Despite one of the largest investigations ever conducted, the FBI was unable to catch the burglars.  Those responsible have never revealed their identities.  Until now.  For the first time the burglars have decided to speak about their actions.  1971 is their story, examining the consequences and implications of their actions - then and now.

"Reaction to the film at Tribeca has been effusive, both from audiences and critics. At the first screening the thunderous ovations for the subjects of the film were extraordinary." - Forbes

"Hamilton is announcing the immediacy right off the bat: "1971" could have been any year. "1971" should be every year." - Indiewire

"An important addition to the filmography of dissent-oriented political docs." - Hollywood Reporter
