  • The Secret Agent

    1983. USA. Directed by Jacki Ochs. Using archival footage, The Secret Agent examines the legacy of exposure to dioxin spray—better known as Agent Orange. Ochs's documentary, which premiered at the 1983 New York Film Festival, remains relevant today. An invaluable meditation on the Vietnam War, the treatment of veterans, and sustained abuse of the environment, the film includes footage of a young Al Gore and the music of renowned protest singer Country Joe McDonald. Preserved with funding by The Women's Film Preservation Fund. 58 min.
