This fascinating film about the origins of the Wikileaks organization follows an international cast of characters from Australia to Germany, Iceland and the U.S., and takes us into the server bunker in Sweden.
We learn about the early hacker life of Julian Assange, and his later decision to form an organization where whistleblowers can anonymously pass information that documents crime and immorality. His stated goal is to expose injustice, and nothing exemplifies this more than the leaked film entitled "Collateral Murder".
Discussion will be led by Bob Meola of Courage to Resist.
