CFE film series: Citizenfour
January 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
After Laura Poitras received encrypted emails from someone with information on the government’s massive covert-surveillance programs, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong to meet the sender, who turned out to be Edward Snowden.
“documentary of the year … allows the viewer to experience, first-hand, history being made”
— Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
“A gripping and chilling behind-the-scenes insight into privacy, paranoia, politics, and the man at the centre of a complex issue – Edward Snowden”
— Sarah Ward, ArtsHub
““Citizenfour” stands alone in evoking the modern state as an unseen, ubiquitous presence, an abstraction with enormous coercive resources at its disposal.”
– A. O. Scott, New York Times
Introduction by Blake Fitzpatrick, Chair, Ryerson’s School of Image Arts.
Co-sponsored with the Documentary Media Research Centre at Ryerson University
