From the Academy Award-winning director of “Citizenfour” comes a compelling new portrait of whistle blower Julian Assange. Filmed over six years, “Risk” is a character study that collides with a high stakes election year and its 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, director Laura Poitras finds herself caught between the motives and contradictions of Assange and his inner circle.

For more than fifty years, Relvy Teasdale and his son John made beautiful films on their farm and within their small community in the Wimmera region of Australia. For the Teasdales, farming and film-making were an inter- related devotional practice, offering views into the psychological, social and economic complexities of a wondrous and sophisticated rural world that on the one hand seems to be disappearing but on the other continues to sustain, adapt and recreate itself. Their luminous archive connects past and present generations, revealing the rhythms and rituals of life on the land and drawing surprising parallels between settler and indigenous modes of mapping and looking after country.
