Description

The documentary was based on interviews with William Binney, a 32-year veteran of the National Security Agency, who became a whistleblower and described the details of the Stellar Wind project that he helped to design.

Her reporting on NSA mass surveillance received the George Polk Award and shared in the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for public service. Then again, [Poitras] told me, the trigger may have been a wire transfer that she sent in 2006 to Dr.Omidyar's "concern about press freedoms in the US and around the world" sparked the idea for the new media outlet. Instead she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute with experimental filmmakers Ernie Gehr [21] and Janis Crystal Lipzin. Poitras and journalist Glenn Greenwald are the only two people with full archives of Snowden's leaked NSA documents, according to Greenwald. S. National Security Agency’s global mass surveillance programs was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service, and the George Polk Award for National Security reporting. The lawyers also scrutinize the way in which Poitras changed the film after its premiere in 2016 as well as other critical aspects.

He stated that the program he worked on had been designed for foreign espionage, but was converted in 2001 to spying on citizens in the United States, prompting concerns by him and others that the actions were illegal and unconstitutional and that led to their disclosures.
