Undoubtedly one of the biggest news stories of the last few years, the leaking of key National Security Agency surveillance data by former employee (and now exile) Edward Snowden is the subject of filmmaker Laura Poitras' new documentary CITIZEN FOUR. Poitras herself was contacted by Snowden before the media melee began, making her one of the key insiders to the whole process.
Those wanting to see the film, and learn more about the story behind the film, can see Poitras via satellite Q&A (She won't be in the country due to security reasons) discuss the making of her film and her work with Snowden at several screenings and events this month, including at the UK premiere which will be at London Film Festival on Friday:
Playing at London Film Festival. Oct 17, 2014 8:00 PM at Curzon Chelsea Cinema with director Q&A.
Picturehouses: Friday 17 October, 8.00. A Q&A broadcast live via satellite from the UK premiere at the 58th London Film Festival will follow the screening.
