Screening 

Documentary, directed by Kathy Corley
Webster University, St. Louis, USA

Drawn from over a thousand FBI files and archival material, 'SECRET: The Josephine Baker FBI Files' tells the story of St. Louis-born entertainer Josephine Baker and two men who pursued her: media personality Walter Winchell and FBI director J. Edgar Hoover. Mixing old and new sound and images to link the present and past, SECRET uncovers Baker's little known identity as a global human rights activist. 

Interview with the film's director by another award-winning documentary filmmaker with a discussion about the power of the documentary film and the information media in general.
