Meet the Man Behind the Story: CITIZENFOUR + Edward Snowden live in conversation

6 Nov 2016

We are showing additional screenings of CITIZENFOUR following this special screening.

Since 2013 leaked documents from whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed the extent to which GCHQ, NSA and cooperating governments spy on our personal emails, private calls, internet searches, phone locations and vast amounts of other data. It’s been two years since ICA programmed his seminal Oscar-winning documentary portrait CITIZENFOUR as part of its film programme, showing for a recordbreaking 30 consecutive weeks.

At this special screening of CITIZENFOUR on 6 November, ICA and BRITDOC are excited to present a conversation with Edward Snowden to discuss what has changed in regard to mass surveillance over the last three years, and thoughts about his own future.

Edward Snowden Live in Conversation

These and other themes will be explored in the live conversation via satellite that will take place at ICA between Jess Search, CEO at BRITDOC and Edward Snowden straight after the special screening of CITIZENFOUR. The event will be introduced by Nico Marzano, ICA Cinema & Film Programme Manager and Luke Moody, Head of Film at BRITDOC

A unique extract of artist Trevor Paglen’s video work CIRCLES (2014, 3 mins) will be screened before CITIZENFOUR.
