Julian Assange shot to fame in 2010 after using his already controversial website WikiLeaks to publish secret documents from the US military. More recently, he has been under a European arrest warrant following charges of sexual assault on two women in Sweden. Over fears that the UK will send him over and that he subsequently will be extradited to the US and possibly face charges surrounding his releasing of classified American diplomatic cables in 2010, he has fled to the Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he has diplomatic asylum. 'We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks' tells his story of computer hacking, public rights to government-classified information and the real ethical nightmare surrounding both issues.
This is a documentary focusing on the real intentions of WikiLeaks and raising various moral issues about its use. It has been directed by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney ('Taxi to the Dark Side', 'Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room') who co-produced the film with Marc Shmuger ('Dead of Winter') and Alexis Bloom ('Frontline/World') and features founder Julian on his rapid journey to global fame. It is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013 with UK release dates yet to be announced.
