CITIZENFOUR – Official Trailer

In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four,” who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies.

    Have you watched it already? I have this very high in my list. Ed Snowden, the hero we needed.

    The fact that we were already expecting the NSA to be spying on us actually scares me more than the fact that they actually are. I mean we now know for a fact that the NSA can and does track every digital move we make and we still pretend it’s okay because we seemingly can’t do nothing about it. I guess Orwell’s 1984 is already here.

    How can we be totally okay with this?

    A must watch documentary for everyone who owns a phone, computer or a debit/credit card.

      We should make an animation on this as well. Let’s watch the full doc together when you’re around to make a synopsis.
