In 2013, CIA employee Edward Snowden grew disillusioned with many of the global surveillance programs he was involved with as part of his work with the National Security Agency (NSA) and sought to address concerns around their legality internally. After these issues were not resolved, Snowden put his entire future at risk, leaving his job and flying to Hong Kong where he would disclose thousands of classified documents to a select group of journalists, including filmmaker Laura Poitras and reporter Glenn Greenwald, who would publish these explosive records in newspapers, causing political anger around the world. This film is the extraordinary real-time documentation of the initial meetings between Poitras and Greenwald with Snowden in Hong Kong as we witness the conversations they had as the story develops. ‘Citizenfour’ is a film which captures history in the making, provoking discussion and debate around the ethics of whistleblowing, the role of the media and political protection, as well as pertinent issues around civil liberties, privacy and surveillance.
