Synopsis

In June 2013 computer analyst Edward Snowden hit the headlines for releasing classified documents calling attention to government secrecy and mass surveillance being used without consent. Snowden invited a documentary filmmaker and a newspaper journalist to his hotel room in Hong Kong to support him in leaking the information, in the full knowledge that it would lead to his arrest. This is a thrilling and intimate dramatization of those crucial moments in the hotel and episodes across Snowden’s career and personal life that triggered his journey from committed employee to law breaker. Intimate and revealing, the film is an intriguing debate starter around responsibility, accountability, the intrusion of computer technology on our lives, and the control we and our governments should have over it.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."
