This month we’re teaming up with Open Rights Group to screen the multi award-winning documentary, Citizenfour – a real life thriller, unfolding by the minute, giving audiences unprecedented access to filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s encounters with Edward Snowden in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents providing evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). All welcome – you don’t have to be in the NUJ or working as a journalist. The film will be followed by a panel discussion.
