Citzenfour: Laura Poitras, Edward Snowden & Glenn Greenwald | Interview | TimesTalks


Publicado el 26 de feb. de 2015

When whistleblower Edward Snowden exposed the National Security Agency’s worldwide electronic surveillance program, it was to Oscar–nominated filmmaker Laura Poitras and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Glenn Greenwald. Don’t miss this special opportunity to hear the director of CITIZENFOUR – the film nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature – the first journalist to write about Snowden’s revelations and Snowden himself (via live video) in conversation with New York Times media columnist David Carr about the film and the issues it raises. David Carr passed away shortly after this interview. His obituary is available at http://nyti.ms/1vHCHyk

Special Presentation

World Premiere

In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras was in the process of constructing a film about abuses of national security in post-9/11 America when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as “citizen four,” who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema:  a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. Poitras is a great and brave filmmaker, but she is also a masterful storyteller: she compresses the many days of questioning, waiting, confirming, watching the world’s reaction and agonizing over the next move, into both a great character study of Snowden and a narrative that will leave you on the edge of your seat as it inexorably moves toward its conclusion. CITIZENFOUR is a major work on multiple levels, and a deeply unsettling experience.

Laura Poitras will discuss the film in one of our free HBO Directors Dialogues on October 11.

Citizenfour’ Trailer Released Ahead Of Laura Poitras’ Edward Snowden Film

Publicado el 10/10/2014

When National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden reached out to Laura Poitras in January 2013, the documentary filmmaker knew just what to do: Make a documentary.

She had recently won a MacArthur “Genius Grant” in 2012 and was already several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when Snowden contacted her under the name “citizen four.”

When she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong in June 2013, she brought her camera with her. The result is a film unlike anything done before. It’s world premiere is at the New York Film Festival Friday and will be in theaters October 24th

Hi MyLoyalViewers!, Today i will give you a glance at the Edward Snowden and the NSA Leaks controversy. What i want to achieve with this Non-Profit Research is give to all of you Correct & Reliable information about this topic so you can forge YOUR OWN OPINION informed. As i said before, this is a Non-Profit Documentary/Research created for EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES. To obtain all the relevant information for you so you could be well informed, BytezAutomations use different CONTENT/MEDIA obtained from PUBLIC DOMAINS. Since we admit the fact that we couldn’t obtain all the corresponding permissions for some MEDIA, we strongly believe this information fulfills the Section 107 of the COPYRIGHT ACT (1976) which reads and I quote:

LA DEMOCRACIA EN PELIGRO.


Big Brother #1984 #1776

Big Brother #1984 #1776

Total: mucho ruido de fondo para contaminar el sonido real, esa cosa denominada “realidad”. El asunto consiste en desviar la atención elevando el nivel del “problema”, desviando la atención desde la masa apática hasta los administradores del régimen sistemático. Como si el “problema” consistiera básicamente en un enredo de la altas esferas, donde la élite de la dominación burocrática se entretuviera espiándose entre sí por puro aburrimiento y los ciudadanos que integran la masa sucia fueran meros espectadores poco atentos, devaluados, obviados descaradamente, prescindibles, de la resolución de divergencias menudas sobre temas menores que solo incumben a los “altos”. Los “medios” y los “bajos” al margen, pero no, la verdad es fundamentalmente otra y es que los gobiernos que resultan de nuestros votos en nombre de la seguridad nacional se dedican a espiarnos a nosotros con una intensidad y una dedicación obsesivas, financiando sus actividades ocultas y secretas con el producto del sudor de nuestra frente via impuestos, todo muy legal a simple vista, pero NO. Porque los fondos provienen de actividades legales, alegales e ilegales. Así se practica una delincuencia de “alto vuelo” en nombre del pueblo y para el pueblo, cuando la verdad es que la rebaja indecente de nuestras libertades civiles es una obscenidad inadmisible, regular desde la mentira, inventar alegremente “norma” desde la trampa y el atajo para resolver pretendidamente problemas “creados” por injerencias bélicas, políticas suicidas, megalomanías personales, narcisismos de pacotilla, estrategias de intervención bizarras, intromisiones económicas intolerables y perversas, obscenidad inadmisible como digo con la coartada de asegurar nuestra seguridad. Esta vigilancia obstinada, practicada por una porción menor de funcionarios con privilegios legales, formales y morales desorbitados, que actuan con una impunidad repugnante, todo un poder enfrentado al primer poder de la ciudadanía soberana, afecta inaceptablemente a todos y cada uno de los “ordenes” de nuestra vida e influye en TODO, porque al final lo regula TODO, desde el precio del pan hasta la dirección de la investigación tecnológica, TODO, en su propio beneficio, NO en el nuestro. No cumplen con su obligación, no rinden cuentas, ocultan actividades e información a los dirigentes, gestionan la información proporcionando datos irrelevantes, falsos o contaminados, para impulsar desde los gobiernos ( así legalizan sus actividades como se blanquea el dinero ), proyectos y planesparticulares, privados, participando en un juego de poder atroz que ocasiona males infernales. Si los gobiernos actuales ( con el respaldo de la ciudadanía ) no responden de inmediato poniendo verdadera LEY y verdadero ORDEN en esos complejos escindidos del poder real constituido, delincuentes globales, actuantes por su cuenta, utilizando el poder judicial para regular democráticamente ese CISMA peligrosísimo, corremos el peligro real, creerme, de perder nuestras libertades, nuestras democracias, nuestros sueños y esperanzas. RESCATEMOS NUESTRAS LIBERTADES YA, AHORA. Atentamente.

Wozniak: Snowden a hero, I hope to have courage to do the same thing (Worlds Apart Preview)


Should Edward Snowden be considered a hero for revealing how U.S. surveillance programs operate? One of the most prominent figures in the technology world thinks so. RT’s Worlds Apart sat down with Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who explained his views on the NSA leaker and his revelations.

Edward Snowden Seeking to Join KGB Veterans Group

Renegade National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden has applied to join a group of former Russian intelligence and security officials, according to the group's director.


Participation in a union of former KGB security, intelligence, and police officials, would likely change Snowden’s status from that of a whistleblower seeking to expose wrongdoing, to an intelligence defector who has changed sides.


Alexei Lobarev, chairman of the group called "Veterans of the Siloviki" -- literally "men of power" -- told a Russian news outlet on Monday that Snowden, who has been staying in a Moscow airport transit lounge for a month, applied for membership in the group.


The state-run RIA Novosti news agency reported Wednesday that the Russian Federal Migration Service issued an official paper to Snowden that will allow him to leave the transit zone of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport as part of an agreement with the Border Guard Service.

[ v e r a x ] : Edward Snowden / 斯諾登 – Short Film


This is a short film based on the events of Edward Joseph Snowden/斯諾登, a former CIA and NSA employee who leaked a top secret mass surveillance programme from the US and UK.

We have never met or been in contact with Edward Joseph Snowden.

We are a band of independent and amateur filmmakers in Hong Kong who were both excited and puzzled as to why Snowden chose to come to Hong Kong. While nearly every media outlet wanted to get their hands on him, we decided to produce a short fictional video to depict his experience in HK, and how it would have affected certain parties: Namely, the CIA contingent based in HK who would be tasked to find Snowden. The Hong Kong Police who would be stuck in between the US and China. And the journalists who want to get the scoop. It was also important for us not to ‘twist’ Snowden’s character. We really knew little about him. Although he is a central character, he is not the most prominent. It is more about the maelstrom of events surrounding him.

The idea was hatched two days after he revealed his identity, and principal filming began on June 20th. We were also filming on the same day (23rd) when we learned Snowden had left the city. Therefore we ramped up production efforts and published our short film ‘Verax’ on the 25th. ‘Verax’ was the alias Snowden used when contacting journalists via encrypted chat services. We loved the idea of having Snowden here and the media frenzy it created. We really wanted to make a film based on such real-life news events, especially as it continued to develop. This project really tested our mettle especially when most of us had day jobs.

To reiterate, we made this for fun and for the love of filmmaking. We had no commercial or political motives.
