We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks

Thursday 6th Feb, 8pm

In 2006, an Iceland-based group launched the website WikiLeaks.org. Run by Australian Internet activist Julian Assange, the site regularly publishes top-secret documents and covert information, often regarding governments and their respective military operations. Wikileaks eventually went on to facilitate the largest and most damaging security breach in American history.

 ‘We Steal Secrets’ – Alex Gibney’s documentary on the controversial website, traces Assange’s rise to internet phenomenon, the people he interacts with and looks at the ethical questions that are thrown up when information of a top-secret nature is released to the broader public. As leaked intelligence information continues to dominate headlines globally, this documentary offers a chance to catch up on the facts and personalities behind this unique 21st century phenomenon.

The certificate on this film is 15A.

Admission is €8 and the film starts at 8 p.m. on Thursday 6th February. Tickets are available on the door, online in advance athttp://www.nenagharts.com/#/films/4578901309 or from the arts centre reception, book now on 06734400.

Eleanor McEvoy

Saturday March 1st, 8pm..

Described by Joe Duffy as ‘The Woman who gave her heart to the Nation’ – Eleanor McEvoy brings her ‘Girl in a Black Car’ Tour to Nenagh Arts Centre on Saturday 1st of March.

 Her performances are intimate, emotional, uplifting affairs in which she explores soul, love and humour, using own compositions and interpretations from other songbooks, with her unique voice and beautiful playing. 

 Eleanor shot to fame when a label owner heard her play a self-penned song that would give a name and title track to their planned all woman compilation album ‘A Woman’s Heart”, Ireland’s best selling album. ‘Precious Little’ was a Billboard hit and Sophie has become a worldwide focus and comfort to millions of young people with eating disorders.  Her most recent album ‘Alone’ is a collection of her best-loved songs performed solo.
