First Trailer & Poster for Gibney's WikiLeaks Doc 'We Steal Secrets'
"The truth has consequences." Focus World has debuted the first official trailer and poster (seen below) for Alex Gibney's new documentary We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, which does tell exactly that, the story of WikiLeaks, run by Julian Assange. This actually looks like an incredibly fascinating, in-depth, inside look at the story of what went down before and during the WikiLeaks event, and who the man behind this historic digital site really is. Or perhaps isn't? A twist! This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to positive reviews, and will be out in select theaters by this summer. Everybody has secrets…
Watch the first trailer for Alex Gibney's We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, from Apple:
Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Oscar-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. Gibney's past docs include Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Taxi to the Dark Side, Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson, Casino Jack, Client 9, Magic Trip, The Last Gladiators, and Mea Maxima Culpa.
Official poster above. Alex Gibney's We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is scheduled for a limited released by Focus World starting on May 24th later this summer. For more updates, visit their official site.
