The annual HumanDocs Film Series presents the documentary "Silenced" with a brief panel discussion to follow.
The film tells the story of three government whistle blowers - one in the Department of Justice, another in the CIA, the third in the NSA - whose values put them at odds with their agencies' policies following 9/11.
"Silenced" explores the "unique courage and character it takes to challenge unethical behavior from within the American national security establishment" in the uncertain aftermath of 9/11, the film's distributor explains. The film offers a provocative critique of systematic failures of the U.S. government and its draconian over-reactions.
The HumanDocs Film Series is hosted by Lipscomb's College of Arts and Sciences and presented in partnership with Lipscomb's Institute for Conflict Management, the Nashville Film Festival, and Nashville Public Television.
