Julian Assange’s mother to speak at Murwillumbah

HERE is your chance to get a personal insight into one of Australia's most prominent exports, Julian Assange.

The mother of WikiLeaks founder,Christine Assange, will be conducting an information session at Murwillumbah's Regent Cinema on April 6.

This will coincide with the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia's Big Screen Film Festival screening of Underground: The Julian Assange Story.

Ms Assange will be there to answer any queries relating to the film and her son's chequered past.

"It is wonderful to bring writer/director Robert Connolly and his new thriller, Underground: The Julian Assange Story, to Murwillumbah," Big Screen Co-ordinator Jacqui North said.

"We previously worked with Robert to bring his award-winning 2009 film Balibo to Broken Hill, where he met a very appreciative regional audience. We hope everyone in Murwillumbah will enjoy this unique night."

The movie is a dramatization of Assange's teenage years growing up as a hacker in Melbourne and has received rave reviews from many critics.

These days he is well known as the founder of not-for-profit media organisation WikiLeaks, which has released thousands of documents directly leaked by the public.

Their work has been met with controversial Government reactions worldwide, but other organisations view WikiLeaks as promoting freedom of information.

Tickets are $12 for adult admission and those looking for more information can visit www.cinemaregent.com.
