If the U.S. government believes it must spy on all of us in order to keep us safe, is the man who blows the whistle on these programs a traitor?

Decide for yourself after witnessing with your own eyes the handover of classified documents revealing widespread surveillance by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. Titled for Edward Snowden’s code name, this real-life international thriller chronicles remarkable behind-the-scenes encounters between Snowden and filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald. Set largely in a hotel room in Hong Kong, the documentary s portrayal of the trio’s many days of questioning their source, confirming his story, and watching for the world s reaction results not only in a great character study but also a haunting message about the dangers of mass invasions of privacy. Winner of the 2014 Academy Award for best documentary. Bonus feature: deleted scenes. Rated R for language.
