SAVING ASSANGE: Defending Wikileaks (2020) (trailer)

4

SAVING ASSANGE is an archive-driven, compilation, internet documentary that uses extracts from news bulletins, broadcast programs, TV docs, talk shows and other online content to revise the Assange saga and argue the legal, moral and ethical case for Julian Assange and Wikileaks.

Is Assange a journalist...or cyber-terrorist? A rapist, or victim? A hero, or traitor? A madman, or martyr? Watch, and judge for yourself.

Noam Chomsky, Daniel Ellsberg, Annie Machon, John Pilger, Pamela Anderson, Max Blumenthal, Vivienne Westwood, Lee Camp, Chris Hedges, Amal Clooney, Mairead Maguire, and Roger Waters...are just some of the professionals, journalists, artists, politicians, celebrities and other dissenting voices advocating for Assange and Wikileaks in this 4-part docu series.

Part 1 recaps the backstory of Julian Assange and Wikileaks, the so-called rape accusations, and seven years of asylum leading up to his forced, illegal eviction from the Ecuadorian Embassy and arrest by British Police in 2019.

Part 2 interrogates the legality of Assange's arrest, his fight against extradition to the United States, the role of the deep state in his persecution, and the chilling effect his arrest will have on other journalists, publishers and whistle-blowers.

Part 3 questions the lack of solidarity and support from the international journalism community, and whether Assange is indeed a legitimate journalist/publisher, or merely a "Russian Agent."

Part 4 revisits some of the most devastating Wikileaks Revelations, and calls on the public to support, defend and save Assange from extradition, torture and possible murder by the US government.

Films For Action is a library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Over the last 15 years, we've reviewed and curated over 1,000 free documentaries and 4,000 short films, plus over 150 pay-per-view documentaries, spanning 34 topics related to changing the world.

During this time we've been able to reach tens of millions of people - not by owning a TV network or spending truckloads of cash on advertising, but because millions of awesome people keep sharing 'films for action' with their friends on social media - in particular, our 850,000 supporters on Facebook and 70,000 site members. 

One of the coolest things is, thanks to our patrons, our library is ad-free and 100% supported by member donations. We don't accept any government or corporate funding, and the dozens of emails we get every week asking us to put ads or sponsored posts on the site just go in the trash bin. The Pay-Per-View films on our site, of course, help support the filmmakers, and 90-100% of the revenue for PPV films hosted by us goes to the filmmakers. 

To thank our $5/mo patron subscribers, we partner with filmmakers to provide access to a growing number of films that are normally PPV. With just 26 highly-curated films at the moment, it's basically a mini "Netflix for world changers," but its main function is to support the library as a whole, which is 99% free and always will be.

Want to become a patron? Subscribe here. You can cancel or pause your subscription at any time.

If you'd like to know more, want to help out, or you're a filmmaker or distributor looking to collaborate, drop us a line via our contact page.
