WikiLeaks: Secrets and Lies

Patrick Forbes
wikileaks secrets and lies

Festival year: 2013

Unique portrait of controversial Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and the rise and fall of the biggest whistle-blowing platform in modern history.


Using interviews with those directly concerned, director Patrick Forbes reconstructs how the Wikileaks website, initially designed as a portal for accessing secret political and diplomatic information, has gradually changed into a navel-gazing exercise. From the disclosure of numerous secret military documents by dissatisfied American soldier Bradley Manning to the high-profile rape case against Assange in Sweden, the film highlights the controversial Wikileaks history, which has brought not only benefits; ask whistleblower Manning, who has been in detention for a long time now pending his trial.
