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.
Post-screening Q&A with Betty Medsger, Washington Post journalist and the author of “The Burglary: The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover’s Secret FBI.”

Mazama Productions, Ltd. presents Fast Break, TONIGHT, September 23rd at 7:30 at the Maysles Cinema. This presentation is curated and presented by Laura Coxson (Producer of Albert Maysles’ Iris).
Evoking a cinema verite feel not found in most sports documentaries, Fast Break examines the 1977 Portland Trailblazers basketball team in a surprisingly personal and compelling fashion. Inter-cutting excerpts from the 1977 playoff / championship season, the film steps outside of the basketball court, and into the everyday lives of the Trailblazers, as well as their coach Jack Ramsey. Whether it’s biking the Oregon coast with star center Bill Walton, hosting a kids basketball camp with Dave Twardzik, or joking with Maurice Lucas at the pool – Fast Break lets the players speak for themselves: about basketball, life and playing in Portland.
Maysles Cinema is located at 343 Lenox Ave, New York, NY 10027.(212) 582-6050

I have never seen Inside Job or Client 9: The Rise and Fall of Elliot Spitzer. I have been wanting to see these two documentaries for sometime. Now is my chance to see these films right here in Harlem! According to Maysles Cinema, they are showing these two films this weekend under their “True Crime New York” series.
Client 9 shows tonight, March 26 at 7:30 PM. “This film is an in-depth look at what Spitzer himself refers to as greek tragedy.” And Inside Job, an Academy Award winner for 2010 Best Documentary, will show tomorrow, March 27 at 7:30 PM. This film “provides a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse.” Order tickets here!
So if you want to see films on “true crime in the rotten apple” – particularly these two films, which is the last chance – head on over to Maysles Cinema in Harlem located at 343 Lenox Avenue, between 127th and 128th Streets. I plan to see one or probably both films this weekend. Lookout on foursquare!
