Through the Lens: The Man Nobody Knew

Jul 11, 2012

Thursday, Doug is back in the studio with the latest installment of our Through the Lens documentary series. Our guest is Carl Colby, whose latest film is about his father William Colby, spymaster and former head of the CIA. The film is Carl's search for an authentic portrait of his father, a man whose life was obscured even to those closest to him. It's part memoir, part history of the CIA. Really, it's about the costs of what a country does in secret.

RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will present a free screening of The Man Nobody Knew on Thursday, July 12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. For more information, here.

Carl Colby has produced and directed documentary films about Franz Kline, Bob Marley and Frank Gehry among others. Zeffirelli's Tosca aired on PBS stations and earned Colby an Emmy Award. His latest documentary feature is called "The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of My Father CIA Spymaster William Colby."
