Filmed over six years, Risk is a 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 (Wikileaks) is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine WikiLeaks and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story, director Laura Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle.
