New Delhi: Tonight WikiLeaks and Sixteen Films release 'Mediastan - a WikiLeaks road movie'. The release of 'Mediastan' is timed to challenge the UK opening of 'The Fifth State', the multi-million dollar Hollywood anti-WikiLeaks movie produced by Dreamworks in collaboration with Disney. UK audiences will be able to watch 'Mediastan' online for free during The Fifth Estate's opening weekend.

The audiences will get a behind-the-scenes insight into 'Operation Cablerun', the 2011 operation during which WikiLeaks ran hundreds of thousands of secret US government cables to media outlets around the world.

In 'Mediastan', an undercover team of journalists drives across the central Asian republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and into US occupied Afghanistan, before continuing its journey into the west; regrouping in Julian Assange's kitchen, ambushing the editor of the Guardian, and obtaining candid footage of the New York Times editor and its publisher Arthur Sulzberger speaking about Obama.

Julian Assange, explaining why he produced the film stated, "Central Asia is the most fascinating geopolitical region in the world. It is the cream in the geopolitical layer cake. On the top, Russia, on the bottom, China; in the middle, a fight for US influence."

Assange explained, "what started out as a geopolitical road movie transformed into a tale of comparative censorship as our adventure continued into the unexpected heart of 'Mediastan'."

'Mediastan' is directed by Johannes Wahlstrom and produced by Julian Assange with Rebecca O'Brien and Lauren Dark at Sixteen Films. It is being distributed by Journeyman Pictures.
