A son’s eye-opening documentary about his dad’s life of enacting and exposing secret CIA operations
Starts December 2, 2011 in the Bay Area

***SPECIAL APPEARANCE: Director Carl Colby will be present for Q&As after select screenings (details below)***

A son's riveting look at a father whose life seemed straight out of a spy thriller, THE MAN NOBODY KNEW uncovers the secret world of legendary CIA spymaster William Colby, who rose through the ranks of "The Company" and soon was involved in covert operations in Vietnam and other hot spots around the globe. But after decades of obediently taking on the White House's toughest and dirtiest assignments, and rising to become Director of CIA, Colby defied the President. Braving intense controversy, he opened up to Congress some of the agency's darkest, most tightly held secrets and extra-legal operations. Now, his son Carl Colby asks a series of powerful and relevant questions about the father who was a ghost-like presence in the family home—and the intelligence officer who became a major force in American history, paving the way for today's provocative questions about security and secrecy vs. liberty and morality. The film forges a fascinating mix of rare archival footage, never-before-seen photos, and interviews with former National Security Advisers Brent Scowcroft and Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, former Secretary of Defense and CIA Director James Schlesinger, as well Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Bob Woodward, Seymour Hersh and Tim Weiner.

“Carl Colby’s smart, fact-packed film THE MAN NOBODY KNEW operates on many levels, all riveting.” –Andy Webster, New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“… address[es] a security-paranoid nation's covert sins with skeptical smarts and a respectful son's understandable compassion.” –Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

“THE MAN NOBODY KNEW… amounts to an absorbing, sometimes appalling course in how U.S. foreign policy evolved and functioned following World War II…” –Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
