Laura Poitras, the award-winning director behind Edward Snowden feature Citizenfour, has launched a new project dedicated to "journalistic filmmaking." The documentary unit, named Field of Vision, will produce 40 to 50 "episodic and individual short-form nonfiction films" across three seasons every year, with 2015's inaugural season set to begin on September 29th. The first series of shorts, made by Poitras herself, will look at the story of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange, chronicling his publication of diplomatic cables and his time spent in political asylum in London's Ecuadorian embassy.
