Available in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema 30 June.
Laura Poitras, Academy Award winning director of 'Citizenfour', returns with her most personal and intimate film to date.
Filmed over six years, Risk is a complex and volatile character study that collides with a high stakes election year and its controversial aftermath. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organisation he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story with unprecedented access, Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle.
In a new world order where a single keystroke can alter history, 'Risk' is a portrait of power, betrayal, truth, and sacrifice.
