Edward Snowden film premier, invite only


CITIZENFOUR 
  
A film by Laura Poitras
Q&A following the film with  director Laura Poitras, 

Moderated by The Washington Post investigative reporter Dana Priest

7:00PM, E Street Cinema 555 11th St. NW, Washington, DC 20004 

RSVP required Please RSVP to rsvp@prcollaborative.com

A riveting first-person look at how Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald first met with whistleblower Edward Snowden in Hong Kong where he gave them documents showing widespread abuses of power by the National Security Administration. An unprecedented fly-on-the-wall look at one of the most groundbreaking moments in recent history, CITIZENFOUR (executive produced by Academy Award(r)-winner Steven Soderbergh) had its world premiere as a Special Presentation in the Main Slate at the New York Film Festival. 

 In January 2013, filmmaker Laura Poitras (recipient of the 2012 MacArthur Genius Fellowship and co-recipient of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service) was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by the NSA and other intelligence agencies.  In June 2013, she and Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. 
CITIZENFOUR opens October 24 in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco,
and at E Street Cinema in Washington, D.C. with a national release to follow

Liberty on the Rocks


Over the past few decades, regular police forces have become at times nearly indistinguishable from military units and small offenses have warranted terrifyingly aggressive responses. This has led to many police forces becoming a source of fear, rather than security, for the citizens they pledged to protect. As more news outlets feature stories of police misconduct, this issue rises to a national discussion. What are the incentives in place that have led to police departments increasingly resembling military troops? What are possible solutions?

This month Liberty on the Rocks is partnering with the Charles Koch Institute and the Reason Foundation to focus this month’s happy hour on the issue of police militarization. Join us to discuss this important issue with the liberty-minded network of DC. Special guest, Dr. William Ruger, vice president of research and policy at the Charles Koch Institute and vice president for research at the Charles Koch Foundation, will speak briefly on this issue.

TWO Drink tickets will be given to each guest and light food will be served.

We will be in the DUBLIN ROOM, of Irish Whiskey Public House, located at 1207 19th St NW, Washington, DC 20036. The closest metro stops are Dupont Circle (Red), Farragut North (Red), and Farragut West (Blue, Orange, Silver).

Haven’t been to a Liberty on the Rocks event before? No problem! The goal of our monthly happy hours is to provide a casual forum for tavern-style politics and keep the conversation about liberty alive. It is a great place to meet new friends who share your interests, or reconnect with those you already know.
