The Documentary XY Chelsea Premieres at the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival

People may ask how did a war in Iraq founded on deception end up with the court marshall of the truth teller? The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival documentary may answer that.  

This question frames XY Chelsea, a documentary set in the aftermath of the release from prison of Chelsea Manning, a former U.S. Army soldier and intelligence analyst convicted of violating the Espionage Act in 2013, after leaking classified U.S. documents to WikiLeaks. Manning’s information revealed illegal practices—such as torture and abuse of detainees and the unreported deaths of over 15,000 civilians—engaged by the U.S. military.

While imprisoned, Manning, a trans woman, also began to transition medically. The film offers insight to her motivations for whistleblowing, and ultimately, for taking on the U.S. government. What is seemingly a portrait of a polarizing figure in recent American history also doubles for the blueprint on how patriotic Americans can resist an unlawful ruler.  

The documentary will air in June 2019 on Showtime.  Check out the trailer here.
