Edward Snowden changed the world when he leaked information about the National Security Agency’s sweeping surveillance of ordinary people’s everyday communications. Several years ago, when our case against mass surveillance finally reached the Supreme Court, it was dismissed for lack of evidence of the secret programs. Snowden provided that evidence, at great personal risk.

Snowden is a politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley. It reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world. This is the epic story of why he did what he did, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off, making for one of the most compelling films of the year.

A special preview screening for ACLU members and supporters takes place on Tuesday. September 13th at 7pm at the Joan and Irwin Jacobs Theatre at the Museum of Photographic Arts at 1649 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92103.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion led by Mitra Ebadolahi, ACLU of San Diego & Imperial Counties Staff Attorney, and Professor Jack Lerner, Director, Intellectual Property, Arts, and Technology Clinic at University of California, Irvine School of Law.

To RSVP please fill out this form. We hope you can join us on Tuesday, September 13th.

Note: As with most screenings, because the film’s producers are concerned about piracy, they will be checking in phones with cameras as you enter the auditorium. Please either leave your phone in the car or check it in prior to the screening to be picked up afterwards.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the ACLU screening of Snowden!
