CITIZENFOUR – January 22nd

January 22, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

On Thursday, January 22nd, the Bozeman Doc Series will present the most highly acclaimed documentary of the past year, Citizen Four.

A real life thriller, unfolding by the minute, Citizen Four gives 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).

Citizen Four places you in the room with Poitras, Greenwald, and Snowden as they attempt to manage the media storm raging outside, forced to make quick decisions that will impact their lives and all of those around them.

The film not only shows you the dangers of governmental surveillance—it makes you feel them. After seeing Citizen Four, you will never think the same way about your phone, email, credit card, web browser, or profile, ever again.

The New York Times calls the film “Tense & frightening… a primal political fable for the digital age.”

One of Time magazine’s ten best movies of 2014, Citizen Four is a rare snapshot of history in the making.

Learn more at the film’s official website.

Doors open at 6:30 PM, and the films begins at 7:00. Tickets are available at the door or before the show at Cactus Records and Movie Lovers. Tickets are also available online at www.bozemandocseries.org, where you can buy season passes and 7 film punch cards, learn more about the series, and view trailers for upcoming films. The series will continue through April with one screening every two weeks.
