Encore Screenings | Academy Award Nominee: Best Documentary Feature | In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras received encrypted e-mails from someone identified only as "citizen four" who claimed to have information about covert surveillance programs run by US government agencies. This informant became one of the most divisive figures in modern political history: Edward Snowden.

CitizenFour is a document of tense encounters between subject and filmmaker, unfolding in real-time as Snowden's revelations erupted into an international political mindfield, creating an edge-of-your-seat documentary thriller that unfolds before our eyes.
