Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Oscar winning documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney’s WE STEAL SECRETS: THE STORY OF WIKILEAKS details the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history. Hailed by some as a free-speech hero and by others as a traitor and terrorist, the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall are paralleled with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the soldier who revealed the inner workings of the government’s international diplomacy and military strategy. WE STEAL SECRETS is a riveting, multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our elusive search for the truth.
