I’m watching this 44 minute film, “Committee on Un-American Activities” by Robert Carl Cohen online right now. From radfilms.com:
“..the first film ever made by a private US citizen which questioned the legitimacy of a US governmental agency. As its name implied, the Committee’s purpose was to investigate those organizations and individuals it deemed “un-American.”
The writer-director of the film uses as his focus a modern day “Everyman,” an average American who wanted to understand the Committee, its purpose, its function. He watches as events spanning a quarter-century unwind. …He sees the parade of friendly and unfriendly witnesses who appeared before the Committee, of witnesses who refused to cooperate with the Committee and subsequently saw friendships destroyed, jobs lost, freedom exchanged for prison and, in some cases, even suicide.”
