The 2014 Oscar winner for Best Documentary is up for Blu-ray pre-orders at Amazon. Order your copy here.
As previously reported, Starz/Anchor Bay is preparing 'Citizenfour' for Blu-ray sometime later this year, and now the date has been set for August 25.
2014’s Academy Award winning documentary 'Citizenfour' is a real life international thriller that unfolds by the minute. With unprecedented access, this gripping behind-the-scenes chronicle follows award winning director Laura Poitras (My Country, My Country) and journalist Glenn Greenwald’s remarkable encounters with whistle-blower Edward Snowden in a hotel room in Hong Kong, as he hands over classified documents that provide evidence of mass indiscriminate and illegal invasions of privacy by the National Security Agency (NSA). The documentary not only shows the dangers of governmental surveillance, but makes audiences feel them. After seeing the film, viewers will never think the same way about their phone, e-mail, credit cards, web browser or digital footprint again.
Specs have yet to be revealed, but supplements include: Bonus Scenes, New York Times Talk with Laura Poitras, Glenn Greenwald, Edward Snowden and David Carr, Film Society of Lincoln Center Q&A with Laura Poitras, and "The Program" - A New York Times Op-Doc by Laura Poitras.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $26.99.
