“We Steal Secrets” reminds us that despite the potential of WikiLeaks, its project of truth and consequences remains treacherous and complicated in practice.” – Read the New York Times review


In 2010, WikiLeaks and its sources used the power of the Internet to usher in what was for some a new era of transparency, and for others the beginnings of a new information war. “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks” explores how this enormous trove of classified U.S. data was leaked and the impact the documents had on international events. Academy Award® winner Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) digs into the untold story, showing how one small group of digital activists took on the most powerful governments in the world.
