WINNER · BEST DOCUMENTARY, BEST DIRECTOR · CAPRICORN FILM FESTIVAL 
Now incarcerated amongst London’s most infamous murderers and rapists in notorious Belmarsh Prison, Julian Assange’s story has continued beyond Wikileaks, beyond exposing US war crimes, and beyond safe harbour in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Assange’s father and brother, John Shipton and Gabriel Shipton, are in a new David versus Goliath bid to bring Assange back to Australia, ceasing the US Government’s continued war of attrition to extradite Assange to US soil.

John and Gabriel show a new side of Assange in Ithaka, a human side, as an imprisoned journalist for outing war crimes. Award-winning director Ben Lawrence (Hearts and Bones, SWIFF’20, Ghosthunter, SWIFF’19), gains incredible access with an expansive list of interviewees including Noam Chomsky, John Pilger, as well as Daniel Ellsberg – the journalist the came under US government scrutiny for releasing the Pentagon Papers during the Vietnam War.

Ben Lawrence, John Shipton, and Gabriel Shipton are guests of the festival.
