After Laura Poitras received encrypted emails from someone with information on the government’s massive covert-surveillance programs, she and reporter Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong to meet the sender, who turned out to be Edward Snowden.
This is a pretty disturbing documentary. It was made in 1981 and I can remember watching it probably a year or two later. I’ve never forgotten some of the images. It’s really weird how the issues that it raised 38 years ago have never been addressed and they’re still causing big problems now – to be honest things have got worse.
It’s a documentary worth watching but you won’t enjoy it.
The Killing of America full documentary.

This movie is a classic (classic zombie movie).
TPB AFK – The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard – watch it at Kino.Social.
I’ve just finished watching a pretty scary documentary called Terms and Conditions May Apply. It doesn’t necessary tell me something I didn’t already know or at the very least suspected but it still made me feel pretty sick.
I had already begun the process of deleting my data from my social networking accounts and closing them down. After watching this documentary it’s made me more determined to head down this path. The scary thing is my data probably won’t actually be deleted from these companies servers (who knows how long they will retain it for).
This is a must see – I definitely recommend this documentary to everyone.
