RISK (2017)
Starring Julian Assange, Sarah Harrison and Jacob Appelbaum. Directed by Laura Poitras.

Risk continues Laura Poitras’ examination of voices who question authority in an era of ever-increasing surveillance and state secrecy. With unparalleled access, the lm offers an intimate portrait of the cypherpunk underground: technologists, journalists and lawyers working to expose crimes at the highest levels and help activists worldwide to fight political oppression, in spite of considerable personal risks.
CITIZENFOUR (2015)
Starring Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and William Binney. Directed by Laura Poitras.

A real time thriller, giving audiences an exclusive front-row seat to the moment Edward Snowden changed history with his revelations of widespread government surveillance around the world.

In June 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald met with Snowden confidentially in Hong Kong, where he handed over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). As the story breaks, they are forced to manage the raging media storm around them, and find their personal security and that of their loved ones under threat.
