We Steal Secrets-The Story of WikiLeaks - Official Trailer

The first official trailer has been released for the documentary, We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, created by Alex Gibey, who previously worked on Freakonomics, Taxi to the Dark Side and Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room. The film tells the story of Julian Assange, who published state and military secrets online. Here’s the official synopsis:

“Filmed with the startling immediacy of unfolding history, Academy Award-winning director Alex Gibney’s We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is a riveting, multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth. Detailing the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history, the film charts the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall in parallel 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.”
