We Steal Secrets: The Story Of Wikileaks
Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney's film is a riveting, multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth. Detailing the creation of Julian Assange's controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history, the film charts the enigmatic Assange's rise and fall in parallel with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers.
"The movie's especially deft at exposing spin, whether it's the US media's or Assange's."
