We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks

We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks Release Date: May 24, 2013

A (sort of) big screen documentary about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks is a multi-layered tale about transparency in the information age and our ever-elusive search for the truth. Detailing the creation of Julian Assange’s controversial website, which facilitated the largest security breach in U.S. history, the film charts the enigmatic Assange’s rise and fall in parallel with that of Pfc. Bradley Manning, the brilliant, troubled young soldier who downloaded hundreds of thousands of documents from classified U.S. military and diplomatic servers.

The movie will be released ‘day-and-date’ in a very limited number of movie theaters and on Video On Demand (VOD).

This whole new way of releasing movies, sometimes on VOD before a limited release, is so counterintuitive to the movie theater business that it makes ZERO sense. Who, unless they were completely nuts, would pay money to see a movie in a theater (especially a documentary) that is already available on TV for a much cheaper price?
