Ithaka plus Q & A with John Shipton, Glasgow Film Theatre


Friday 8 July, 2022 at 8 p.m.

At 76, John Shipton’s retirement is interrupted when his son, Julian Assange is arrested. At the prison, John finds Julian in a bad way and discovers the USA government has begun proceedings to extradite him — threatening 175 years in prison.

From that day, John is thrust into a tireless campaign across Europe to save his son. Along the way, he teams up with Julian’s fiancé and legal advisor, Stella Moris. With a human life at stake and dire ramifications for global freedoms in the balance, this intimate story follows their fight and illuminates the powerful forces they confront. What we discover amid this global media storm is a devoted father confronting regret, forgiveness and the mercurial connections of family.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with John Shipton.
