The Right2Know campaign will screen the documentary The Most Dangerous Man In America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers, as a reminder of the need for free press, access to information and the price that whistle-blowers have paid. The documentary covers the leaking of the Pentagon papers on the Vietnam War by Ellsberg, how he was hailed as a hero, accused of being a traitor, ostracised by friends and put on trial for his life. Timeous, as the South African government is perceived as seeking to suppress information, the film will be shown free at The Bioscope Independent Cinema, 286 Fox Street Johannesburg, on 18 October 2010 at 7.30pm on a first come-first serve basis. The screening of the documentary is courtesy of the Tri-Continents Film Festival.
