When Edward Snowden, a computer analyst who also worked for the CIA, three years ago published confidential documents the US National Security Agency (NSA), has become a thorn in the side of the Government and intelligence services, as well as the most famous whistling-today. No wonder he had to flee from the USA and hide in the arms of Russia, which has been granted temporary asylum, nor the fact that it has become a worldwide hero. Snowden is with the help of newspapers The Guardian and The Washington Post revealed how far the deadline the US Agency for National Security, which is in a Pact with telecommunications companies and governments of some European countries monitored nothing false and nothing obliged, in particular, unsuspecting everyman around the world, and for it paid a high price.
Snowdnova story reads like the best espionage novel which has no end, because the main character in the US on the one hand is still waiting prison on charges of espionage, on the other hand, a computer genius at an undisclosed location in Russia, where his company works his girlfriend Lindsay Mills still seeking asylum in one of the other, let us say, more comfortable countries.
“Snowden” Although Snowdnov thriller is not yet finished, it was already up to now the inspiration for many books and films. After his feat, which began in Hong Kong in the clash between Snowdnom and journalist Glenn Greenwald, in his Oscar-winning documentary, good citizens already in 2014 immortalized filmmaker Laura Poitras, who in their manner of his story went on to Oliver Stone.

Even before he began recording, Stone was already at 1.7 million, and then by waiting for new problems. First of all, in Russia, where companies that cooperated with the US, refused to participate in the project, and then at home in America, where filming would not support any studio. Stone is at the end of the financial saved Europe, specifically France and Germany, money was came just eight days before the start of the recording.!
"It is very strange to record the story of an American who can not finance in America. They say we have freedom of speech, but the thought is funded and controlled thought is controlled but also the media. The state is, as far as this very snugly and at certain levels is not allowed any criticism. Can you film movies about leaders who are advocating for human rights and are already dead, but is not able to make a film about the living man, "the resistance encountered in the US media commented Oliver Stone, who did not let distract of the project. .
