WikiLeaks: War, Lies and Videotape
The biggest controversy of the digital age.
This revealing film highlights the latest developments in the WikiLeaks scandal as more sensitive state secrets are published for all to see.
Featuring a brand new interview with WikiLeaks founder and the enemy of the Pentagon, Julian Assange, as bio-pic The Fifth Estate hits the big screen. We meet journalists and hackers from London, Washington, Reykjavik, Berlin and Paris, all fighting for transparency and challenging the rules of military secrecy. Examining the strengths and weaknesses of WikiLeaks, we see how intelligence has been seriously misinterpreted, particularly in relation to Iraq. The protection of whistle-blowers is another hot topic, with Bradley Manning sentenced to 35 years in prison for providing information to WikiLeaks, and Russia granting Edward Snowden temporary asylum after he leaked details of American surveillance programmes, infuriating the US authorities.
