The Trust Fall: Julian Assange 15

Kym Staton, Australia, 2023, 128m.

The Trust Fall: Julian Assange’ examines the meaning and significance of the insights that WikiLeaks shared with the world, the resulting behaviour of the governments involved, the extraordinary personal risk taken by Assange, and the wider fundamental issues around press freedom that affect all of us.

Filmed over two years, on three continents, and in ten cities, the film features an array of luminaries including Daniel Ellsberg, John Pilger, Tariq Ali, and Chris Hedges, with the insights of experts including Jennifer Robinson, Jill Stein, Stefania Maurizi, and Nils Melzer, in addition to reflections of Assange’s family including Stella Assange, John Shipton, and Gabriel Shipton. It is narrated by Roger Waters, M.I.A, Tom Morello and Jonathan Oldham.

Examining the motives of the peace activist and innovator, this astounding, shocking, and inspiring film invites viewers to embark on a journey of understanding, where the circumstances are unprecedented, and the destination unexpected.

Director Kym Staton states that: 'we wanted the audience to experience somewhat of an emotional ordeal in watching the film, a range of emotions, from sadness, to anger to shock, to hope. To leave the cinema exhausted, shaken and compelled to take action. The aim of this film it to add weight to the campaign for the freedom of this heroic, courageous Australian journalist and peace-activist. For his freedom, and the freedom of us all'.

With support from Alborada Films.
