Exposing the truth behind exposing the truth.

Audience Award Nominee/ Documentary

A young, unhappy American soldier presses a key on his computer and changes the world forever. Fascinating, frightening, and factual. Oscar-winning documentary director Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room) tackles the Wikileaks phenomenon, adjusting the conventional focus to highlight crucial background stories whilst giving chase to the controversial website’s elusive, enigmatic figurehead, Julian Assange.
