This is a short teaser for the new movie “Snowden“, directed by Oliver Stone. Former CIA employee Edward Snowden has leaked thousands of classified documents to the press. Snowden has been called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a patriot, and a traitor. Snowden explained his actions saying:
I don’t want to live in a society that does these sort of things [surveillance on its citizens] … I do not want to live in a world where everything I do and say is recorded … My sole motive is to inform the public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them.
His disclosures have fueled debates over mass surveillance, government secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy.
