We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks

We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks

Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-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 brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers, revealing the behind-the-scenes workings of the government's international diplomacy and military strategy.
