Read More ‘Citizenfour’: New York Review
The pay cable network announced Thursday that the acclaimed doc about National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden will air on Feb. 23 — the night following the Academy Awards. This will mark a substantial platform for the feature, which currently has a limited theatrical release and recently made the Academy’s shortlist for eligible titles in the best documentary race.
Citzenfour, which finds journalist Glenn Greenwald interviewing Snowden in a Hong Kong hotel room, has been lauded by critics — including The Hollywood Reporter‘s Todd McCarthy.
Oscar-nominated director Laura Poitras (My Country, My Country) had been working on the feature before Snowden contacted her. (He used the name “Citizenfour”).
Citzenfour has already earned honors from the New York, Los Angeles, Bost, San Francisco film critics.
Radius presents the Praxis Films production, in association with Participant Media and HBO Documentary Films.
