Directors: Clara López Rubio, Juan Pancorbo
When: 18 May, Doors 6pm GMT
Where: Curzon Soho Cinema, 99 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, W1D 5DY
Q&A with: Julian Assange’s wife Stella Assange, UK Member of Parliament Apsana Begum and the film director Clara López Rubio.
The future of Julian Assange — and of investigative journalism — is now being decided by the British Home Secretary. If the WikiLeaks founder is extradited to the United States, he will face a sentence of up to 175 years for publishing US war crimes including torture, murder and human rights abuses.
For his lawyer, Baltasar Garzón, the pioneer of Universal Justice, much more is at stake than the freedom of an independent journalist and publisher. As head of Assange’s legal team, Garzón warns that the growing influence of intelligence services puts freedom of information, our right to know what our governments are doing, and democracy at risk.
