美国纪录片导演及制片人Laura Poitras在一部关于美国是9月11日袭击后果的跟踪拍摄的电影中工作了好几年，2013年1月，她从自称是“第四公民”陌生人那里收到一封加密的电子邮件，他给她提供了美国国家安全局（NSA）和其他情报机构非法窃听行为的内幕信息。2013年6月，在调查记者Glenn Greenwald 和卫报情报记者Ewen MacAskill 陪同下，她带着摄像机机来到香港，与陌生人在酒店第一次见面，他透露了自己是爱德华·斯诺登……
In January 2013, Laura Poitras, an American documentary film director/producer who had been working for several years on a film about monitoring programs in the United States that were the result of the September 11 attacks, receives an encrypted e-mail from a stranger who calls himself, “Citizenfour.” In it, he offers her inside information about illegal wiretapping practices of the US National Security Agency (NSA) and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, accompanied by investigative journalist Glenn Greenwald and The Guardian intelligence reporter Ewen MacAskill, she travels to Hong Kong with her camera for the first meeting with the stranger in a hotel, who reveals himself as Edward Snowden. Scenes of their meeting take place in Snowden’s hotel room, where he maintains his privacy. Shots of Snowden in his bed, in front of his mirror and of the hotel from a distance form the character of Snowden as a trapped political agent.
After four days of interviews, on June 9, Snowden’s identity is made public at his request. As media outlets begin to discover his location at The Mira Hong Kong, Snowden relocates to Poitras’ room in an attempt to elude phone calls made to his room. Facing potential extradition and prosecution in the United States, Snowden schedules a meeting with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and applies for refugee status. After Poitras believes she is being followed, she leaves Hong Kong for Berlin.
