In 2006, an Iceland-based website called WikiLeaks.org was launched. As run by Australian Internet activist Julian Assange, the site regularly published top-secret documents and covert information, often regarding governments and their respective military operations. Oscar winner Alex Gibney – who's exposed institutions like Congress, the Army, and Enron – now tells the gripping story of what happens when a small group of people decide to break open the intelligence vaults. He unearths a tangled web of questionable ethics, idealism, stunning hypocrisy, and courage. This timely and eye-opening film joins the global debate over access to information and proves the power of individuals to shape our world. (Alex Gibney; USA; 2013; 130 min)
