A Good American is a gripping docu-thriller about a ground-breaking surveillance programme, the brilliant mastermind behind it and how a perfect alternative to mass surveillance was killed by NSA-management for money – three weeks prior to 9/11. The life and legacy of Bill Binney, perhaps the most significant NSA whistleblower after Edward Snowden, is recounted here in this compelling and explosive documentary. This will be the first time A Good American has screened in Hull.

Panel – begins at 4pm

Annie Machon worked for MI5 during the 1990s as a counter-terrorism officer with a focus on the activities of the IRA. In 1996 she resigned from the Security Service and blew the whistle on a series of alleged crimes that she claimed to have witnessed during her time in the intelligence services. Today she works as a journalist and prominent campaigner. Annie will be sharing these experiences and join us for a Q&A about privacy and whistleblowing in a digital age.
