In 1978, Robb Moss, camera in hand, embarked with a group of friends and fellow river guides on a 35-day rafting trip down the Colorado through the Grand Canyon. Moss, who has taught filmmaking at Harvard for 17 years, decided to catch up with five of the guides some 20 years later, intercutting fresh material with footage from "Riverdogs," his film about that trip.

Smart and unexpected, "Secrecy" combines thoughtful interviews with an elegant visual look to produce an incisive examination of some of the key issues of our time. Co-directed by historian Peter Galison and filmmaker Robb Moss, this documentary's subject is how much secrecy we really need. It asks whether it's OK to use methods inconsistent with our values to protect our democracy, or whether those methods will leave us with no democracy left to protect.

Here's a question: What film festival, set in a small but prosperous ski town, is about to screen more than 100 feature films and play host to two members of the Weather Underground, a Thai prince, Francis Ford Coppola and cult hero/cartoonist Harvey Pekar? It has to be Sundance, and not just because of the skiing.

As Robb Moss approached 50, living a quiet life as a Harvard film professor with his wife and three daughters, his version of a midlife crisis involved more than the usual introspection. As he went through the nostalgic process of looking back over his misspent youth, he had a film to watch: his first short, an artistic 16-millimeter naturalistic documentary that captured him and his friends as they rafted, naked, down the Colorado River in summer 1978.
