Directed by Laura Poitras | 2014

In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from an anonymous source. The person identified himself as "citizen four," saying he was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June that year, Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the source, who was later revealed to be Edward Snowden.

Executive produced by Academy Award-winning director Steven Soderbergh, CITIZENFOUR is the utterly riveting, real-life thriller account of Poitras and Greenwald’s encounter with whistleblower Edward Snowden. Revealing Poitras’ footage from these tense meetings, this sui generis film is a fly-on-the-wall look at one of the most groundbreaking moments in recent history. Sneak preview courtesy of RADiUS.
