Ithaka: A Fight To Free Julian Assange

John & Gabriel Shipton IN PERSON, Assange's father and brother

Filmed over two years across the UK, Europe and the US, this documentary follows 76 year-old
retired builder, John Shipton's tireless campaign to save his son, Julian Assange.

The world's most famous political prisoner, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, has become an
emblem of an international arm wrestle over freedom of journalism, government corruption and
unpunished war crimes.

Now with Julian facing a 175 year sentence if extradited to the US, his family members are
confronting the prospect of losing Julian forever to the abyss of the US justice system.
