Former CIA agent Carrie Mathison is living in New York, working for a foundation that offers legal aid to Muslims accused of terrorism, while also caring for her young daughter and a former agent who suffers from PTSD. Much to the annoyance of her old CIA colleagues, she also serves as an advisor to the president-elect. When one of her clients is killed while allegedly carrying out a terrorist attack, Mathison must deal with the response from the CIA and the government, while facing serious repercussions in her home life. The VFF will screen the season 6 finale episode: “America First”. Introduction by VFF advisory board member Andy Edmunds, discussion with executive producer Howard Gordon and director Lesli Linka Glatter, moderated by William Antholis (Miller Center)
