Risk

The story of Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organisation he leads and fracture the movement he inspired.

Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks, is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organisation he leads and fracture the movement he inspired.

Filmed over six years, this story is captured with unprecedented access by Laura Poitras, the Academy Award-winning director of Citizenfour, who 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.
