This is a very important documentary and I encourage everyone to see it. It has received an enormous interest from around the world.
Bosse Lindqvist and Jesper Huor, who followed the team behind Wikileaks, says in an interview, quote:
“Even people within Wikileaks has wondered why SVT got this access when other media hardly managed to reach them by telephone. I think one reason for that may be that we where one of the few producers that was genuinely interested in what they where actually trying to accomplish.”
With this film they try to get under the surface of the organization, understand the driving forces and the ideology behind the tremendous impact that Wikileaks has made the past year. It’s also a real eye-opener when it comes to what we always have suspected – that power corrupts and that secrecy is a weapon of the corrupt, it’s their way of keeping their voters asleep.
The documentary was aired on Swedish televison the 12th of dec and is available for a short time after that at SVT Play from where I ripped the english version (SVT Play is restricted to those that have a Swedish ip-address).
So what are you waiting for? Call a few friends and prop your self down in your couch and watch. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did.
