Austria, 2015, 100 min

A GOOD AMERICAN teaser 01 from Friedrich Moser on Vimeo.

The mass surveillance revealed by the whistleblower Edward Snowden was not the first scandal in the history of the American intelligence agency NSA. Friedrich Moser’s eye-opening A GOOD AMERICAN soberly unfolds the deeply disturbing story of how corruption, lies and personal ambitions led to the closure of a cheap and effective monitoring system that demonstrably could have stopped the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The mind behind the ingenious system was former intelligence agent Bill Binney, who tells the story of how his brilliant system was abandoned in favour of an expensive and useless intelligence programme.
