Citizenfour, the Academy Award-winning film that follows Edward Snowden as he released top-secret government documents detailing NSA wiretaps, is now available to stream online for free.

The film was available via an online library for films focused on topics that “challenge modern society.” Citizenfour won an Oscar for best documentary feature last month.

Update: It appears that the site was not legally hosting the film but was purporting to be hosting it with permission, so we’ve taken down the links. You can purchase access to the film legally on its official website or watch it free on the Channel Four website in the UK for the next two days.
