He's one of the most wanted — and hated — men in the world. Julian Assange, former hacker and founder of whistleblower website WikiLeaks, has drawn the ire of the United States for publishing classified materials relating to secret communications with other countries, combat logs and footage of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, and emails relating to the Democratic Party's 2016 presidential primary and election campaigns. Wanted for questioning into allegations of sexual assault in Sweden, Julian has been confined to the Ecuadorian embassy in London since 2012. Now, Laura Poitras, director of a documentary on whistleblower Edward Snowden, gets unprecedented access to Assange in Risk. Filmed over the course of six years, including the 2016 presidential election, Poitras tells the story of Assange and WikiLeaks from the man himself and those closest to him.
