Laura Poitras, will be screened at the 48th Directors’ Fortnight. This half-American work co-produced by Praxis Films Berlin, presented as a follow-up to the story of Snowden’s extraordinary gesture, immerses us in the lives of Julian Assange and the technologists, volunteers and reporters behind WikiLeaks. Once again, Poitras goes behind the scenes (following Assange into asylum and the WikiLeaks team into exile) to defend the actions of whistleblowers. The world sales of Risk are handled by Submarine.
