Who controls information in the 21st Century?

WE STEAL SECRETS is the ever productive Alex Gibney's film about WikiLeaks, Julian Assange, Bradley (now Chelsea) Manning and the fight to control the flow of information in the 21st century. In the age where governments spying on their people have become a matter of mundane routine, technology has also made it possible to circumvent the traditional channels of information. This means that there is a considerable amount of power in the hands of the people - power governments all over the world would like to have back.
