Chapel by the Sea, 95 Roscoe St Bondi
What do At The Movies co-host David Stratton, Wayside Chapel founder Ted Noffs and high court judge Michael Kirby have in common? They were all investigated by the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO).
Filmmaker Haydn Keenan poured over ASIO files and discovered some amazing stories. His four part series Persons of Interest was screened on SBS in January. Many people took notice of the series as, according to Haydn, 500,000 individuals were spied on.
What began as an organisation to counter foreign communist influence soon became unnerving investigations on a number of Australians. To be worthy of your own ASIO file you only needed to be an actor, journalist, indigenous person or protester.
On Sunday 30 March Haydn will talk about how ASIO changed over time and who it investigated. Don't miss out!.
