Friedrich Moser, the documentary filmmaker who brought audiences “Brussel’s Business,” will premiere his latest doc, “A Good American,” next week. No stranger to delving into dark and complicated political topics, Moser’s newest film looks at the relatoonship between corporate greed and pesonal ambition in conjunction with “the closure of a cheap and effective monitoring system that demonstrably could have stopped the 9/11 terrorist attacks.”

“A Good American” introduces audiences to the man behind the monitoring system, Bill Binney, who tells his side of the story and how his ingenious system was completely disregarded in favor of ineffective and overpriced intelligence programs. As a result, that decision created hundreds of jobs at the CIA, allowing various former NSA employees to be rewarded gross amounts of money. “A Good American” is an eye-opener in both political and very human ways. 

The documentary will have its world premiere at CPH:DOC in Copenhagen next Tuesday, November 10.
