In this compelling documentary, Tarquin Ramsay asks just one question: What is freedom of expression? Talking to whistleblowers like Julian Assange, informers, famous actors, investigative journalists, world-renowned hackers and other freedom of speech advocates, Ramsay explores the current discussion following the Snowden revelations. Can a society function without freedom of expression? This was the question that Tarquin Ramsay, then 15, asked himself when he spoke to Sri Lankans who had witnessed the bloody civil war. Five years later Tarquin Ramsay has become an aspiring filmmaker who interviewed among others Jacob Appelbaum, Julian Assange and Jude Law for this documentary.
