Documentarian Alex Gibney has practically become an industry unto himself, cranking out a series of politically incendiary documentaries like Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room, Taxi to the Dark Side, and Casino Jack and the United States of Money. Next up is We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks, an investigation of the non-profit hacker-espionage organization — fronted by Julian Assange — which published terrifying footage from a Baghdad airstrike and several thousand top-secret government documents in 2010. The doc will apparently cover the ensuing furor, along with the legal problems of Assange, who’s currently avoiding a European arrest warrant while residing in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Watch the trailer:
