The Fifth Estate v. WikiLeaks: Unraveling Fact from Fiction in Hollywood's Dramatization of the WikiLeaks Story,

October 11, 2013 - 5:30pm
San Francisco, CA

Hosted by the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Freedom of the Press Foundation.

Note: Time changed! From the halls of Washington to the streets of Tunis, the names Julian Assange and WikiLeaks have proven not only impossible to ignore, but cataclysmic in both the worlds of politics and journalism. Now the first major Hollywood film adaptation is about to be released, but how accurately does it reflect reality?

Electronic Frontier Foundation legal Director Cindy Cohn, Wired Senior Reporter Kim Zetter, and Freedom of the Press Foundation co-founder Rainey Reitman will discuss what the film gets right and wrong during a panel discussion moderated by the San Francisco Chronicle's Caleb Garling. Each have followed WikiLeaks closely for many years and, in fact, both EFF and Zetter are name-checked in the film.

The panel will begin at 5:30 PM. The discussion will be filmed and posted to the Freedom of the Press Foundation website.
