Other speakers include Pulitzer Prize-winner Lawrence Wright, author of “The End of October;” Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alex Gibney on his new HBO documentary “Agents of Chaos,” a product of years of reporting on Russian interference in the 2016 election; and Maria Ressa, co-founder of Rappler, the news site leading the fight for press freedom in the Philippines, and subject of the new documentary “A Thousand Cuts,” directed by Ramona Diaz.
