SPY SCHOOL

Eye Spy Film Night

SPY SCHOOL is a series of lectures and workshops by Croatian theater director Tea Tupajić. After a chance meeting with Israeli security officers at the Tel Aviv airport, she was fascinated by the interrogation techniques and espionage methods of secret services.

During the SPY SCHOOL workshops, Tea Tupajić will transfer this secret knowledge to the participating groups. More info about the workshops can be found elsewhere on this website.

In the context of SPY SCHOOL, Netwerk Film will pull an all-nighter with a special programme. From the evening through the night until the early morning: the programme is suitable for both night owls and little ones, plus their parents.

The guideline for our selection is a list compiled by former CIA officer Kenneth A. Daigler. Prior to each film, that very same Kenneth A. Daigler will give a short introduction to via Skype.

Kenneth A. Daigler about his selection:

"Since intelligence professionals know the realities of the business, most spy genre movies have little professional appeal to them. While occasionally it is amusing to see one’s self glorified in some death-defying feats and involved with seductive female adversaries, these scenes have little to do with the practical application of the trade. However, there are a few movies which have managed to capture some of the realities of the profession and make the film a teachable tool. Some of these films have been used as focal points for tradecraft discussions during basic training of case officers."

To start the evening, Bureau d'Alimentation serves a notorious dinner. In the morning, we have got you covered with breakfast.

Head on over to the website of Netwerk Film for more info and trailers about the programme.
