We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks (2013)

By Premier
We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks (2013)

Critically acclaimed documentary director Alex Gibney strikes again with another in-depth look at the controversies of modern day society.

Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney’s WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS details the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in US history. Hailed by some as a free-speech hero and others as a traitor and terrorist, the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall are paralleled with that of PFC Bradley Manning, the brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified US military and diplomatic servers, revealing the behind-the-scenes workings of the government’s international diplomacy and military strategy.

In seeking to expose abuse in the corridors of power, Assange and Manning were undermined by forces within and without, as well as by their own human failings. WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS is a riveting, multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth.

 

 

WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS WILL BE RELEASED IN UK CINEMAS ON JULY 12
