Edward Snowden, ennemi d'État
Snowden's Great Escape
John Goetz, Poul-Erik Heilbuth
2015 - 60 min - Couleur - Danemark, Allemagne, France, Norvège, Suède

In June 2013, the White House launched a search operation for Edward Snowden – the man who leaked information on American mass surveillance programmes. Despite this unheard-of diplomatic offensive to catch the “traitor” hiding in Hong Kong, Snowden walked out of Moscow’s airport as a free man 50 days later, and Washington had to admit defeat.
Narrated by the main character, this film explores the methods and pressures of the US government and the incredible events of this manhunt.
