Highlights from the 2018 Cinema Eye Honors


Directed by Laura Poitras Produced by Brenda Coughlin, Yoni Golijov and Laura Poitras

Laura Poitras returns with her most personal and intimate film to date. Filmed over six years, RISK is a complex and volatile character study that collides with a high stakes election year and it’s controversial aftermath. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as the legal jeopardy he faces threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired. Capturing this story with unprecedented access, Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle. (Dokufest)
