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.
