Your Call: How have Edward Snowden’s revelations changed the way you think about civil liberties?


On the October 22nd edition of Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with award winning filmmaker Laura Poitras about her documentary Citizen Four. The film chronicles Edward Snowden's time in Hong Kong, why he decided to expose the US government’s mass surveillance program and fallout of his decision. What do we still need to know about why Snowden risked his life to expose the mass surveillance program? And what has changed? It's Your Call, with with Rose Aguilar
