Screening & Discussion

WTTW and the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events present a free screening and discussion of POV: The Feeling of Being Watched.

In the Chicago suburb where journalist Assia Boundaoui grew up, most residents in her Muslim immigrant neighborhood believe they are under surveillance. Assia investigates and uncovers FBI documents about “Operation Vulgar Betrayal,” one of the largest pre-9/11 counterterrorism probes conducted on domestic soil, right in Assia’s hometown. The film follows Assia as she pieces together this secret FBI operation, while grappling with the effects of a lifetime of surveillance on herself and her family. This program was an Official Selection, 2018 Tribeca Film Festival. The screening will be followed by a discussion.
