Reality (12A)

F Rated Film
Saturday 24th June 2023 - Thursday 29th June 2023

Dir. Tina Satter, US, 2022, 83 mins. Cast. Sydney Sweeney, Marchant Davis, John Way.

Reality Winner was a former American intelligence specialist. She was given the longest sentence ever for the unauthorized release of government information to the media for leaking an intelligence report about Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections via an email phishing operation.

The social media profile of Winner included pictures of her pets, her friends, and her exercise routine. But on June 2, 2017, the posts come to an end. This film begins on the following day and contains verbatim dialogue from the unedited transcript of an FBI audio recording. Arriving at her home in Georgia, she was met by two men outside who politely informed her that they had a search warrant. What follows is a brilliant chamber piece focusing on her interrogation.
