Here's the trailer for the documentary We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks. It comes from documentarian Alex Gibney (Freakonomics, Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room), and it tells the story of Julian Assange who ended up publishing state and military secrets on his online portal WikiLeaks. It looks incredibly intense and interesting. Here's the synopsis...
Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney’s 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. 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.
There's another movie based on Assange coming out later this year called The Fifth Estate, which was directed by Bill Condon and stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the WikiLeaks founder.
