Econintersect:  Last night 'Citizen Four' won the Oscar for Best Documentary Feature of 2014.  Tonight (23 February 3015) it will be shown on HBO.  For the east coast U.S. the starting time is 9:00 pm EST.  Please check your TV listings for time in your region.  The backbone of this film documents the process through which Edward Snowden contacted and interacted with film maker Laura Poitras and journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ewan MacAskill to reveal extensive classified NSA (National Security Administration) documents describing the extent of surveillance conducted by the agency on U.S. citizens.


Follow up:

The film follows the many hours of meetings and discussion as the story is developed from the materials Snowden has revealed, and to a lesser extent, the progress of the whistleblower's self imposed exile.

Below is the official minute and a half trailer for the film, followed by a 9 minute interview with Laura Poitras.
