Acclaimed as one of the best entries in this year’s Berlin Film Festival, Reality was an equally praised Broadway play, conceived and directed by Tina Satter, based on a transcript of an FBI arrest. In 2017, Reality Winner was stopped outside her rented house in Georgia by officers investigating the mishandling of classified information. The 25 year-old Air Force linguist and NSA contractor was accused of leaking an intelligence report to the media about Russian interference in the 2016 US Presidential election. Winner denies wanting to undermine the intelligence community, arguing that the American public should have the same information the government had about the election. With echoes of high profile cases such as Edward Snowden a decade ago, the drama is based on actual events and the dilemmas faced by whistleblowers.
