CITIZENFOUR, documentary about Edward Snowden

I am writing to you about CITIZENFOUR, the explosive and riveting documentary giving audiences unprecedented access to filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s encounters with Edward Snowden in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA).

Here is the trailer for the film.

CITIZENFOUR is playing in Boston at Kendall Square, West Newton and Hollywood Hits Danvers.
