‘Snowden’: Movie trailer released at Youtube
The film based on true events is directed by renowned filmmaker Oliver Stone
The movie tells the story of the famous IT specialist Edward Snowden who served with the CIA and the National Security Agency. As is known, Snowden is wanted by the U.S. government for releasing the highly classified information about the U.S. special services tracing Internet users across the globe via the Web and cell phone activity.
The main part went to Joseph Gordon Levitt.
The premiere is slated for September 16. Producers say that for now, the movie is to be premiered in the USA, Brazil and several European countries. But the screening geography will be expanded, they add.
Watch the video uploaded at Youtube:
Edward Snowden, 33, is an American computer professional, former CIA employee, and former contractor for the U.S. government who copied and leaked classified information from the National Security Agency (NSA) in 2013 without prior authorization. His disclosures revealed numerous global surveillance programs, many run by the NSA and the Five Eyes Intelligence Alliance with the cooperation of telecommunication companies and European governments.
In May 2013, Snowden flew to Hong Kong after leaving his job at an NSA facility in Hawaii and in early June he revealed thousands of classified NSA documents to journalists. Snowden came to international attention after stories based on the material appeared in The Guardian and The Washington Post. Further disclosures were made by other respected outlets.
In June 2013, the U.S. department of Justice unsealed charges against Snowden of two counts of violating the 1917 Espionage Act and theft of government property. On June 23, he flew to Russia where he reportedly remained for over a month. Later that summer, Russian authorities granted him one-year asylum, which was later extended to three years. As of 2015, he was still living in an undisclosed location in Russia while seeking asylum elsewhere.
A subject of controversy, Snowden has been variously called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a patriot, and a traitor. His disclosures have fueled debates over mass surveillance, government secrecy, and the balance between national security and information privacy.
