Film and discussion about the 1971 burglary of the FBI office in Media PA. The release of the stolen files exposed massive FBI corruption. Based on Betty Medsger's book "The Burglary", the film "1971" tells the full story of the Media burglary for the first time. The burglars, never found by the FBI despite one of the largest investigations in the bureau’s history, were found by the author and interviewed extensively for The Burglary. In addition to revealing the motivations and life stories of the burglars, who kept their secret for 43 years, The Burglary also documents the very significant impact of this burglary that shocked the public and moved congress, long intimidated by Hoover, to acknowledge the FBI director’s illegal and damaging actions.
