Poitras Film on Snowden to Debut Oct. 10

Just announced, Snowden film added to sked at NY Film Festival.  And title:  "CitizienFour."  Poitras, of course, key to story since beginning (even pre-Greenwald).  And she's done other key films.
The resulting film, said NYFF director Kent Jones in a press release, is “a brave documentary, but also a powerful work from a master storyteller,” and a work whose screening for festival programmers left the viewers “alternately stunned, excited and deeply troubled.”
Poitras’ past work includes the Oscar-nominated “My Country, My Country” and “The Oath.” She contributed to the Pulitzer Prize-winning coverage of NSA abuses by the Guardian and the Washington Post, and co-founded the digital magazine the Intercept with Glenn Greenwald and Jeremy Scahill.
