Snowden is a story that goes beyond the life of one man; it concerns everyone living in the digital age. What do we really know about our security? Who do we turn to for answers?

Written and directed by Oliver Stone, Snowden tells the story of NSA contractor Edward Snowden who leaked classified documents to the media, revealing some highly "important and top secret info". While some call him a whistleblower traitor, others call him a hero.
