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 these concerns internally. After these issues were not resolved, Snowden decided to leave his job and fly 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 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 around the world. ‘Citizenfour’ is a film which captures history in the making as well as provoking discussion and debate around the ethics of whistleblowing, the role of the media and political protection.
