THE MAN NOBODY KNEW uncovers the hidden life of legendary CIA spymaster William Colby. The consummate American soldier-spy, he served numerous presidents on both sides of the aisle and through it all maintained a loyal soldier’s conviction that everything he did was politically or strategically necessary, no matter how brutal. Colby took on the government’s dirtiest assignments without question—until the day he defied presidential orders and revealed to Congress the CIA’s deepest, darkest secrets. Colby’s story reveals the lies, myths, truths, sacrifices and casualties of a covert spy. The film features appearances by a who’s who of the intelligence community as well as top journalists and writers.

Join Emmy Award-winning Film-maker Carl Colby and a few experts on intelligence—Dr. Loch K. Johnson, UGA Regents Professor and author of National Security Intelligence; Dr. Kristie Macrakis, professor at Georgia Institute of Technology and author of Seduced by Secrets: Inside the Stasi’s Spy-Tech World; and Fred Manget, Central Intelligence Agency, ret.—for a film screening and panel discussion.
