New Trailer for Alex Gibney's 'We Steal Secrets: Story of WikiLeaks'
"I'm untouchable now in this country." After making headlines around the world, Julian Assange and his controversial, government secret spewing website WikiLeaks is now at the center of a new documentary from director Alex Gibney called We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks. The documentary seems to trace the rise in fame and power of Assange and his website following the leak initiated by Pfc. Bradley Manning, and seemingly showing Assange as being cocky and eccentric, but not necessarily villainous. Viewers will have to decide for themselves how they feel about Assange, but this looks like a compelling doc.
Here's the new trailer for Alex Gibney's We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, from Empire:
We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is directed by Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Casino Jack) Detailing the creation of Julian Assange's controversial website WikiLeaks, 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. The documentary is scheduled for a limited released by Focus World starting on May 24th this summer.
