Wikileaks: Secrets & Lies
One of the most shocking Internet scandals in the technology’s brief history was that of the website WikiLeaks and its publishing of internal documents and memos from sources such as the US State Department. BAFTA-winning director Patrick Forbes’ documentary investigates the scandal and its overarching implications by interviewing those directly involved. Wikileaks: Secrets & Lies features the first television interview with the organization’s founder Julian Assange. This film interests me both as a journalist and as someone who finds the ongoing debate of free speech to be engagingly complex.
