Details

Let's watch the film, then we can discuss Wikileaks, Assange, etc... in the APH bar.

"A character study of the complex and volatile Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks. The award-winning director of Citizenfour returns with her most personal film to date, capturing Assange’s story with unprecedented access to her subject. Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle. In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, Risk is a portrait of power, betrayal, truth, and sacrifice."

Reading the reviews made me interested to see the film, such as https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/05/risk-julian-assange-laura-poitras-review/525030/

(I've also suggested this event in thee Cambridge Arts Picturehouse meetup group to get a wider participation.)
