THE LAST EVENT BEFORE THE FINAL HEARING ON ASSANGE'S APPEAL AGAINST THE EXTRADITION DECISION ON February 20/21. IN LONDON
The future of Julian Assange - and investigative journalism - will be decided in court: the hearings now scheduled for February 20th and 21st, 2024 could mean the end of his path in the British court system.
If the High Court rejects his appeal, he could be extradited to the US within 24 hours, and British politicians appear intent on blocking him from going to the European Court of Human Rights.
For their documentary "Hacking Justice: The Assange Case - a Chronicle", Clara Lopez Rubio and Juan Pancorbo gained exclusive access to Julian Assange's legal team led by the former Spanish judge Baltasar Garzón and accompanied the legal prosecution of the Wikileaks founder for 9 years.
The film will be shown at TAK on February 15th. The director and the activists from Assange Support Berlin answer questions from the audience and talk about the status of the global fight for his release.
Clara López Rubio is the director of the film “The Assange Case: A Chronicle.”
After studying at the German Film and Television Academy in Berlin, Clara López Rubio accompanied the Assange case for nine years, after which she wrote the scripts and directed “In the Trap: Julian Assange between Politics and Justice” (2017) and Hacking Justice ( 2021). López Rubio is also a film curator and film historian. Her publications include the book “Aviation Dreams and Spanish Earth” about the cinema of the Spanish Civil War.
