Assange Dancing (2012) was made using amateur video footage, shot and posted online by a DJ at Reykjavik nightclub Glaumbar in 2011. In it, we see activist and WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange dancing in utter solitude on a nearly-deserted dancefloor. Yet by the force of his network, the man represents a crowd in and of himself. By revisiting the image in a slowmotion loop, French filmmaker Clément Cogitore endows the dance with the quality of a ritual trance.
