We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks is the new film by Alex Gibney, the established director/producer whose credits include Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005), Freakanomics (2010), and the upcoming Lance Armstrong: The Road Back. The film documents the rise to fame (or infamy) of Julian Assange, poster-boy for the Wikileaks organisation, and his many international exploits over his career. Delving into his past as a computer hacker in Australia as a teenager, to his current whereabouts in the Ecuadorian embassy, the film packs a very large amount of information into its running time. As well as Assange, the film looks at Bradley Manning, the US Army soldier who leaked a huge amount of information to Wikileaks, and propelled the organisation to fame.
The trailer for Alex Gibney’s upcoming documentary on the story of Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and the Wikileaks saga has been released online.
