Julian Assange: The Price of Truth

For his detractors, Assange is a spy and traitor who deserves his fate. For his supporters, the U.S extradition request is a serious and unprecedented attack on the freedom of information, protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. For the past 10 years, Premiere Lignes has investigated Assange and the WikiLeaks network. In their first film in 2011, they interviewed Julian Assange and his team and profiled these new transparency activists who aim to disrupt citizens’ relationship with information. In 2013, they met Julian Assange again, interviewing him in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he described a society petrified by authoritarian excesses that he felt obliged to confront. During the past decade, Wikileaks has come under constant pressure from the U.S. government. But the site continued to publish compromising documents that illuminate and shape our world. In 2016, its interventions in the US elections played a crucial role in the election of Donald Trump. In 2017, it tried to similarly influence the French election. Today, Julian Assange and WikiLeaks are at a turning point in their history.
