Movie Night at West End: "The Fifth Estate"

Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2018, 6 p.m.

Join us at West End Library for a screening of The Fifth Estate!

Julian Assange, the controversial founder and editor of Wikileaks, teams up with a colleague, Daniel Domscheit-Berg, to work as vigilant watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. On a shoestring budget, the duo manages to develop an online platform to which whistleblowers can anonymously submit private data, and expose government and corporate crimes and secrets. A major conflict arises when the two men come into custody of the largest store of covert intelligence documents ever leaked in U.S. history.

The Fifth Estate is rated R, and should end around 8:10 p.m.
