Citizenfour

As various parties race to get out the first Edward Snowden biopic, the first Edward Snowden movie has already premiered. Laura Poitras‘ documentary Citizenfour debuted at the New York Film Festival over the weekend and while it won’t hit theaters for another couple of weeks, we have the first Citizenfour trailer to share with you in the meantime.

The title of the movie comes from the codename Snowden used to sign his emails to Poitras when he first contacted her. The filmmaker was already deep into work on a documentary about post-9/11 surveillance when she got his messages. Together with journalist Glenn Greenwald, she worked with Snowden to release information to the NSA’s covert surveillance programs in 2013. Watch the Citizenfour trailer, plus the Citizenfour NYFF Q&A panel, after the jump.
