    After the festival-success in 2015, the documentary by Cyril Tuschi with Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, Daniel Ellsberg and William Binney, is now also available on iTunes.

    The film is giving insights into the the motives, aims and contradictions of those people fighting for transparency and privacy in the digital world. While many people celebrate them as heroes, critics, intelligence services and companies condemn their actions as an assault on our security. Why are they doing it? What are their motives?
