Starting today, March 6, 2024, audiences can experience this compelling film at these premier venues.

Directed by Australian filmmaker Kym Staton, this critically acclaimed production marks his debut as a director and is garnering widespread recognition for its examination of the situation, treatment, and broader implications surrounding Julian Assange—the most renowned political prisoner of our time. The film includes an exclusive, never-before-seen interview with a victim of the infamous Collateral Murder incident.

Despite being hailed as the most decorated journalist of the modern era, Assange has endured nearly five years of solitary confinement at England’s Belmarsh Prison. His imprisonment stems from his exposure of U.S. war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. The documentary illuminates his journey and the impending decision from the U.K. High Court Judges regarding his potential extradition to the U.S. Facing charges under the U.S. Espionage Act, Assange confronts the daunting prospect of a 175-year prison sentence.

Already garnering acclaim in the film industry, “The Trust Fall: Julian Assange” has received several awards, including Best Emerging Director at the Melbourne Documentary Film Festival, Best First-Time Director at the Cine Paris Film Festival, and an official selection at the Warsaw Film Festival. This cinematic masterpiece promises to be a thought-provoking and award-winning exploration of one of the most significant figures in contemporary journalism.
