Film Screening Series Begins with Documentary on Snowden


On Monday 19 October, 7 p.m., the United Nations Student Club (UNSC) will hold a free screening of Citizenfour, an award-winning documentary on Edward Snowden. The screening is the first event of Movie Mondays organized by the UNSC in the fall semester.

After filmmaker 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.

In 2015, the film won the Oscar for Best Documentary in the 87th Academy Awards.
