Learn how the leaks came to be

Updated: Snowden documentary pulled from site (but here’s where you can still pay to watch it)

Citizenfour, the acclaimed Edward Snowden-centric documentary (and recent Academy Award winner), is now available to watch online for free at Thought Maybe. The film traces the origins of how Edward Snowden leaked numerous top-secret NSA documents and his meetings with filmmaker Laura Poitras and journalists Glenn Greenwald and Ewen MacAskill, whose work on the leaked files would eventually lead to a Pulitzer prize for public service. The filmmakers and Snowden recently participated in a Reddit AMA in which Snowden said he wished he could have leaked the documents sooner.

UPDATE: Well, that didn’t last long. Looks like the site that posted the documentary did so under dubious circumstances. If you still want to watch it, you’ll have to head to the filmmaker’s website and scan for a screening, head over to HBO Go or watch it on Channel 4 where it will be up for a few more days.
