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 Assange’s rise and fall in parallel with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers.

We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks opens on May 24th.
