WikiLeaks: Truth, Lies, and Videotape

|
This hard-hitting film investigates the website that has given rise to one of the greatest controversies of the last decade.

WikiLeaks is an international non-profit organization that publishes submissions of private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources and news leaks. In late 2010, the website created controversy by publishing hundreds of thousands of classified U.S. Diplomatic cables and Military documents.


From the site's inception through to the current conspiracy allegations, this revealing documentary follows the story of the charismatic founder of the website and new enemy #1 of the Pentagon, Julian Assange.

Directed by award winning investigative reporters Paul Moreira and Luc Hermann from the French press agency Premières Lignes, the film travels to London, Washington, Reykjavik, and Paris to meet the WikiLeaks journalists and hackers who are fighting for transparency and are challenging the all-encompassing rules of Military secrecy.

The film includes an interview with former #2 and spokesperson of the WikiLeaks team Daniel Domscheit-Berg, before he opens his own whistleblowing website and publishes a novel about "his time at the world's most dangerous website". Daniel is now a "dissident" after quitting the company. His claim is that the organization is too centered on the figure of Julian Assange and that there was a rush to unleash big news stories in lieu of steadily building up the organization.
