Director Alex GibneyYear 2013Genre(s) Documentaries
This tell-all documentary about the inception of top secret information leaking site Wikileaks.org and its subsequent release of damaging government files ties together all the events from the last few years, from the arrest of Army Intelligence Officer Bradley Manning after he leaked the famous 'Collateral Murder' video where two Iraqi journalists were killed by US military forces, to founder Julian Assange's arrest over an alleged sexual assault on two Swedish women; an incident widely believed by many Wikileaks supporters to have been a 'honey trap' in order to have Assange arrested once and for all for his involvement in the leaking of government files. While Assange remains in London's Ecuadorian Embassy under diplomatic asylum, this harrowing documentary is released to question just how much right the public have to access secret information and just where the lack of privacy in this sense will end.
We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks' has been directed by Academy Award winner Alex Gibney ('Taxi to the Dark Side', 'Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room') who also acted as a co-producer with Marc Shmuger ('Dead of Winter') and Alexis Bloom ('Frontline/World'). The documentary, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival 2013, features Julian Assange's rise to fame (and notoriety) and the impact Wikileaks has had on the world already. It is set to hit the US on May 24th 2013.
Starring: Julian Assange
