SHOWTIME(R) DOCUMENTARY FILMS AND NEON TO PREMIERE OSCAR(R) WINNER LAURA POITRAS' NEWEST DOCUMENTARY RISK THIS SUMMER FOCUSING ON JULIAN ASSANGE AND WIKILEAKS

NEW YORK - April 9, 2017 - Showtime Documentary Films will release RISK, the latest documentary from Academy Award winner Laura Poitras (CITIZENFOUR). Filmed over six years including through the 2016 presidential election and up to the present moment, RISK takes viewers closer than they have ever been before to Julian Assange and those who surround him. With unprecedented access, Poitras give us the WikiLeaks story from the inside, allowing viewers to understand our current era of massive leaks, headline-grabbing news, and the revolutionary impact of the internet on global politics. RISK is a portrait of power, principles, betrayal, and sacrifice when the stakes could not be any higher. It is a first-person geopolitical thriller told from the perspective of a filmmaker immersed in the worlds of state surveillance and the cypherpunk movement. RISK confirms Poitras' directorial ability to record history as it unfolds on camera, and craft narratives at the highest level. Showtime Networks has partnered with NEON to release RISK theatrically nationwide, with a television premiere on SHOWTIME this summer.

To watch the trailer for RISK, which premiered tonight on SHOWTIME during the season finale of HOMELAND, go to: https://youtu.be/Zx6l4gPVeNE.

"It is an exciting time to be working with SHOWTIME and NEON," said Poitras. "Both organizations are thinking outside the box about how to bring complex stories to a wide audience. I am thrilled to team up with them on RISK."

RISK is produced in association with Field of Vision and First Look Media, and is executive produced by Sam Esmail, the award-winning creator of Mr. Robot. A version of RISK screened to critical acclaim at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, at the Directors' Fortnight. The soon to be completed film joins an esteemed list of documentaries under the Showtime Documentary Films banner, many of which focus on the lives and legacies of culture-defining figures, including the Emmy(R)-nominated film LISTEN TO ME MARLON, WEINER and ZERO DAYS. Other upcoming Showtime Documentary Films include WHITNEY. "CAN I BE ME", exploring the incredible career and complicated life of Whitney Houston, ERIC CLAPTION: A LIFE IN 12 BARS, and a feature-length documentary about the extraordinary life and times of comic legend John Belushi.
