Now Showing @ ALA: CitizenFour Other Moscone Convention Center
123 (N)
Description :

CITIZENFOUR is 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). Poitras had already been working on a film about surveillance for two years when Snowden contacted her, using the name “CITIZENFOUR,” in January 2013. He reached out to her because he knew she had long been a target of government surveillance, stopped at airports numerous times, and had refused to be intimidated. When Snowden revealed he was a high-level analyst driven to expose the massive surveillance of Americans by the NSA, Poitras persuaded him to let her film.

Student perspectives on the following topics include: Diversity, advising and mentoring, gaps in LIS curriculum: critical theory, technical competencies, administrative transparency, information ethics, reflections on online education, pre-professional experience and opportunities, costs and funding, required courses, career placement, dual degrees and specializations.
