Risk (M)

Risk movie poster

The Academy Award-winning director of CITIZENFOUR turns her camera on WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange. Risk continues Laura Poitras’ examination of voices who question authority in an era of ever-increasing surveillance and state secrecy. With unparalleled access, the film offers an intimate portrait of the cypherpunk underground: technologists, journalists and lawyers working to expose crimes at the highest levels and help activists worldwide to fight political oppression, in spite of considerable personal risks.

"a searing portrait of Assange as a man pitted against his cause" - INDIEWIRE
