— [https://goo.gl/XZrMfX] Citizenfour_______________________is a 2014 documentary film directed by Laura Poitras, concerning Edward Snowden and the NSA spying scandal.
Poitras had been working on a documentary about the extent of the government’s surveillance for two years when she started receiving encrypted emails from someone claiming to have proof of the shocking and illegal practices of the NSA. Five months later after the email correspondence began, Poitras convinces Snowden to let her film their encounter in Hong Kong after Snowden made it clear that he intended to use his real identity as the source of the classified information.
Citizenfour manages to put the audience in the hotel room with Snowden showing them his motives for blowing the lid on the government conspiracy. It also takes them through the intense eight-day period where Snowden, Poitras, and Greenwald were forced to make important decisions about the story that would change the world. Lastly, it warns of the extent and dangers of unrestricted government surveillance.
