United States vs. Reality Winner
dir. Sonia Kennebeck/USA/2021/93 min.

Reality Winner (her actual birth name) is a U.S. Air Force veteran who became a whistleblower in her 20s by leaking classified documents about Russian cyber-warfare attacks on the 2016 U.S. elections. The film digs into her case, exploring mistakes made by journalists at The Intercept that led the FBI to discover Winner’s identity.
