“Citizenfour” filmmaker Laura Poitras returns with “Risk,” a new documentary feature six years in the making which will air on Showtime this Summer along with getting a limited theatrical rollout through Neon. A new trailer for the work is also out today.
Executive produced by “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail, the doco offers the WikiLeaks story from the inside with unprecedented access to Julian Assange and his inner circle. The network describes it as “It’s a first-person geopolitical thriller told from the perspective of a filmmaker immersed in the worlds of state surveillance and the cypherpunk movement.”
