Presented in partnership with the 23rd Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival (SLIFF) and chosen by exhibiting artist Mel Chin, On Company Business (1980) is an award-winning documentary by director Allan Francovich about the one of the world’s most powerful secret organizations—the US Central Intelligence Agency. Decades before WikiLeaks and Edward Snowden, On Company Business featured exclusive interviews with CIA employees and was removed by PBS after a single showing in response to the protest of sponsors.
