Trust Fall: Julian Assange, The

Despite being detained, silenced, and hidden from public view in maximum security Belmarsh Prison, multi-award-winning Australian journalist and publisher Julian Assange has become one of the loudest voices for free speech of our times. The disclosures of WikiLeaks and Assange from 2010 onwards ignited a firestorm of controversy and a relentless ongoing pursuit by the most powerful Empire on the planet.

THE TRUST FALL: JULIAN ASSANGE examines the significance of the insights that WikiLeaks shared with the world, the resulting governmental repercussions, the extraordinary personal risk taken by Assange, and the wider issues around press freedoms. Filmed over two years on three continents and in ten cities, the film features an array of luminaries including Daniel Ellsberg, John Pilger, Tariq Ali and Chris Hedges, with the insights of experts including Jennifer Robinson, Jill Stein, Stefania Maurizi and Nils Melzer, in addition to reflections of Assange’s family. 

Directed by Kym Staton.
