About WIKILEAKS-SECRETS & LIES

Using first hand, exclusive interviews with those involved, this film documents the story of the biggest data spillage in history - beginning with the email of a young soldier and the scribbling of a password on a restaurant napkin by the enigmatic Julian Assange, and ending as the rippling tide of revelations continues to echo around the world. It's the story of how the UK's Guardian newspaper turned the original Wiki material from a morass of unreadable documents into the dramatic succession of calibrated and researched scoops it became. It's a powerful story of sex, lies, betrayal, and possibly death, as Bradley Manning stands trial for 'aiding the enemy'. And it's the story of how, whether we like it or not, the age of the secret may be over, because technology has changed, and human nature hasn't.
