Hello all,

This week, in lieu of a presentation, we will be viewing the documentary 
"Citizenfour" (2014).

Citizenfour is a 2014 documentary film directed by Laura Poitras, 
concerning Edward Snowden and the NSA spying scandal. The film had its 
US premiere on October 10, 2014, at the New York Film Festival and its 
UK premiere on October 17, 2014, at the BFI London Film Festival. The 
film features Snowden and Glenn Greenwald, and was co-produced by 
Poitras, Mathilde Bonnefoy, and Dirk Wilutzky, with Steven Soderbergh 
and others serving as executive producers. Citizenfour received critical 
acclaim upon release, and was the recipient of numerous accolades, 
including the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 2015 
Oscars. -- http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4044364/

We are very excited to be able to use this opportunity to further help 
our members understand the impact that this incident continues to have 
on tech in this era. Students who were around in Spring 2016 will 
remember that Snowden spoke to the student body that year, upon the 
release of the feature film that dramatized the events surrounding the 
incident. This is not that film. This is Laura Poitras' first-hand 
documentary of her meeting and initial interactions with Snowden. In 
many ways, this is more powerful than anything Hollywood could cobble 
together - real life usually is. We hope you enjoy the film.

Regards,
