Snowden Documentary Citizenfour Now Streaming Online for Free

/ 2 years ago


Citizenfour, the Academy Award-winning documentary about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, has been made available for online streaming, free of charge. The film is being hosted by Thought Maybe, a website that aims to tackle “issues surrounding modern society, industrial civilisation, globalised dominant culture.”

The documentary was directed by Laura Poitras, a filmmaker placed on a US government watchlist after her 2006 film My Country, My Country, for which she became involved with possible Sunni insurgent Riyadh al-Adhadh. The name Citizenfour was the pseudonym used by Snowden when he first contacted Poitras with sensitive information regarding Prism, the US National Security Agency’s (NSA) mass internet surveillance program.

    I was able to watch it and I have no cable and live in the US. What a brave man. I could have never done this.
