This Friday, at Noisebridge, October 11th, 5:30PM -

>From the halls of Washington to the streets of Tunis, the names Julian
Assange and WikiLeaks have proven not only impossible to ignore, but
cataclysmic in both the worlds of politics and journalism. Now the first
major Hollywood film adaptation is about to be released, but how
accurately does it reflect reality?

Electronic Frontier Foundation legal Director Cindy Cohn, Wired Senior
Reporter Kim Zetter, Forbes senior online editor Kashmir Hill, and
Freedom of the Press Foundation co-founder Rainey Reitman will discuss
what the film gets right and wrong during a panel discussion. Each have
followed WikiLeaks closely for many years and, in fact, both EFF and
Zetter are name-checked in the film.

The panel will begin at 5:30 PM. The discussion will be filmed and
posted to the Freedom of the Press Foundation website.
