Official Secrets tells the true story of British Intelligence whistle-blower Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley) who, during the immediate run-up to the 2003 Iraq invasion, leaked a top-secret NSA memo exposing a joint US-UK illegal spying operation against members of the UN Security Council. At great personal and professional risk, journalist Martin Bright published the leaked document in The Observer newspaper in London, and the story made headlines around the world. 


As part of the Chester Literature Festival, we will be joined by journalist Martin Bright on Sunday 10 November (6pm screening) to take part in a Q&A following the screening of the film.
