We-StealWEBMeet the Filmmaker: Director Alex Gibney will be present for a discussion, moderated by Susanna Styron, following the film.

A fascinating look into what happened when Julian Asssange led the WikiLeaks project to publish sensitive documents from anonymous contributors and when a lonely Army private took the opportunity to air the military’s dirty laundry. The ensuing spin control that surrounded Private Bradley Manning’s actions revealed certain unsavory aspects of America’s conduct in war. The debate over the dangers and responsibilities of secrecy plays out articulately, and WikiLeaks’ project of truth and consequences remains complicated in practice. 2013, USA, 130 minutes, documentary, rated R

“The vastly divergent paths of Assange and Manning make up the most fascinating aspects of this relentlessly compelling film.” – Elizabeth Weitzman, NY Daily News

“It’s complicated. And it’s fascinating.” – Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer

 “By the time this twisty, probing, altogether enthralling movie hits its final notes, the crimes against the Constitution and humanity have been upstaged by personal demons. Which is our woe as well.” – David Edelstein, New York Magazine
