A Documentary Salon Screening

THE MOST DANGEROUS
MAN IN AMERICA

A film by Judith Ehrlich and Rick Goldsmith 

THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN AMERICA

This Documentary catapults us to 1971 where we find America in the grip of familiar scenario: a dirty war based on lies. And Dr. Daniel Ellsberg, one of the nation’s leading war planners, has the documents to prove it. Armed with 7000 pages of Top Secret documents, he leaks the truth about the Vietnam War to The New York Times  and risks life in prison to end the war he helped plan.

“The essential new documentary. A profile that works as both biographical portrait of a man marked by personal tragedy… and a study in belated conscience”… (Joshua Rothkopf, Time out New York)

“The most exciting thriller I’ve seen in a while… as powerful as anything Hollywood can throw at us”. (V.A. Musetto, New York Post)
