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? Not Rated. Directors: Susan Wolf and Machiel Amorison. (US 2018) 78 min
