CITIZENFOUR is a real time thriller, giving audiences an exclusive 
front-row seat to the moment Edward Snowden changed history with his 
revelations of widespread government surveillance around the world.

In June 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald met 
with Snowden confidentially in Hong Kong, where he handed over 
classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and 
illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). As 
the story breaks, they are forced to manage the raging media storm 
around them, and find their personal security and that of their loved 
ones under threat.

CITIZENFOUR not only shows you the dangers of governmental 
surveillance—it makes you feel them. After seeing the film, you will 
never think the same way about your phone, email, credit card, web 
browser, or profile, ever again.
