When: Wed., April 4, 7-8 p.m. 2018
As part of Carnegie Mellon University’s International Film Festival, “Risk” comes from Laura Poitras, the Academy Award winning director of “Citizenfour” (2014). Poitras returns with her most personal and intimate film yet. Filmed over six years, “Risk” is a complex character study of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, Poitras delves into questions of equal access to unprecedented access, where she finds herself caught between the motives and actions of Assange and his inner circle. A discussion will follow. CMU’s McConomy Auditorium.
