Wikileaks Documentary

A fully fledged documentary on Wikileaks, the nature of leadership of its founder Julien Assange as well as recent evolutions and its situation after the Irak war scandal.

WikiLeaks is an international, online, self-described not-for-profit organisation that publishes submissions of private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources, news leaks,  and whistleblowers. Its website, launched in 2006 under The Sunshine Press organisation, claimed a database of more than 1.2 million documents within a year of its launch. Julian Assange, an Australian Internet activist, is generally described as its founder, editor-in-chief, and director. Kristinn Hrafnsson is the only other publicly known acknowledged associate of WikiLeaks as of 2011. Hrafnsson is also a member of the company Sunshine Press Productions along with Assange, Ingi Ragnar Ingason and Gavin MacFadyen.

He was awarded thePulitzer Prize twice and the National Book Award once. In 1955, Mailer, together with John Wilcock, Ed Fancher and Dan Wolf, first published The Village Voice, which began as an arts and politics oriented weekly newspaper distributed in Greenwich Village.
