We’re still waiting for Wikileaks: the movie but in the meanwhile, here is Wikileaks: the documentary. Zodiak Rights, the international rights division of Zodiak Media Group, has signed a deal with news agency Premières Lignes to distribute their documentary Wikileaks: War, Lies and Videotape.
Wikileaks: War, Lies and Videotape, directed by investigative reporters Luc Hermann and Paul Moreira, is described as a revealing documentary dissecting the controversial website whose journalists and hackers have gathered and published hundreds of thousands of classified diplomatic and military documents. It follows the site’s enigmatic founder and new new enemy No. 1 of the Pentagon Julian Assange, including his recent arrest in London. Among the people interviewed for the documentary is Daniel Domscheit-Berg, former Wikileaks No.2 and spokesperson of the Wikileaks team, who is now a dissident after he quit the company this summer to open his own whistle-blowing website and publish a novel about “his time at the world’s most dangerous website”. He claims that Wikileaks is too centered on the figure of Julian Assange with an authoritarian style which contrary to the originally planned transparency-focused mission.
