Filmed over six years, Risk is a complex and volatile character study. Cornered in a tiny building for half a decade, Julian Assange is undeterred even as justice threatens to undermine the organization he leads and fracture the movement he inspired.
Doclisboa wants to question the present of film, bringing along its history and assuming cinema as a mode of freedom. By refusing the categorization of film practice, it searches for the new problematics that cinematic image implies, in its multiple ways of engagement with the contemporary. Doclisboa tries to be a place to imagine reality through new modes of perception, reflection, and possible new forms of action.
