In 2013, Poitras was one of the initial three journalists to meet Edward Snowden in Hong Kong and to receive copies of leaked NSA documents. According to Variety, the film shows Assange is "willing to put everything on the line, risking imprisonment and worse to publish information he believes the public has a right to know". The NSA reporting by Poitras, Glenn Greenwald, Ewen MacAskill, and Barton Gellman contributed to the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service awarded jointly to The Guardian and The Washington Post. Journalist John] Bruning's book claims that the battalion suspected the doctor of being an insurgent.

In June, she traveled to Hong Kong with Glenn Greenwald, and her video of Snowden revealing his identity was broadcast worldwide. The lawyers also scrutinize the way in which Poitras changed the film after its premiere in 2016 as well as other critical aspects. He stated that the program he worked on had been designed for foreign espionage, but was converted in 2001 to spying on citizens in the United States, prompting concerns by him and others that the actions were illegal and unconstitutional and that led to their disclosures.
