I hope you've seen Citizenfour, Laura Poitras' film shot in Edward Snowden's Hong Kong hotel room as the leak was gushed. Subject aside, it's one of the most extraordinary films ever made, and will be talked about for decades (and it's still in theaters).
The film leaves you hankering for follow-up discussion, and last night Poitras, Glenn Greenwald, and Snowden himself (via a video connection) came together to speak about the movie and the aftermath of those events in a TimesTalk which should not be missed. You can view it on the web, or via the LiveStream channel on Roku (just search for "Poitras").
The talk was hosted by the great David Carr, who, alas, died a few short hours afterwards.
