news

A documentary from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks is a quick turnaround examination of the controversy surrounding the website responsible for one of the biggest security breaches in U.S. military history. Following the (in)famous faces behind it, namely activist Julian Assange and a then 22-year-old Private Bradley Manning, who was responsible for the 2010 intelligence leak, the documentary explores the external machinations and personal failings that led to Manning’s arrest and Assange’s exile.

Not only a highly-regarded and influential documentarian responsible for other hard-hitting and politically significant films like Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room and Taxi to the Dark Side, Gibney also directed 2008’s Gonzo: The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. Screenings at the ICA run from Friday July 12, to Thursday, July 18. See the ICA website for more details. **
