Mata Hari The Naked Spy - with filmmaker Susan Wolf
Find out the truth about Mata Hari, World War One’s most notorious female spy
A true story of love, lies and betrayal
Special Screening of Mata Hari The Naked Spy at the Smith Rafael Film Center with Director Susan Wolf in person.
“The story of Mata Hari is that of a woman who triumphed over misogyny and then, when she least expected it, fell victim to it in the most horrible way. … “The Naked Spy” is a good place to make her acquaintance.” – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
At the height of her fame, Mata Hari’s erotic dances packed theaters across Europe, and her image graced the cover of Vogue. Yet within a decade she was gunned down by a firing squad – convicted as a German spy.
As a free-spirited and independent woman, Mata Hari struggled to attain sexual freedom, artistic expression and liberation from the constraints of conventional society. Now, newly-discovered documents cast doubt on her guilt and reveal startling truths about her life.
Was she a dangerous spy, whose boldness and sexuality threatened the establishment, or a victim entangled in a climate of blame and desperation as WWI dragged on?
Directors: Susan Wolf and Machiel Amorison
