Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #51. Laura Poitras’ Untitled Surveillance Documentary

Director: Laura Poitras
Writer: Laura Poitras
Producer: Laura Poitras
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

We wonder if Laura Poitras ever gets any quality shut eye as the documentarian and journalist not only works the docu-form but has become a school of hard knocks reporter recently joining the non-film project in the brand-new online media journal, The Intercept. She’ll likely be covering all bases for the final installment in her proposed “New American Century” trilogy; the currently untitled docu on surveillance would follow My Country, My Country and The Oath.

Gist: The third part will focus on how the War on Terror increasingly focuses on Americans through surveillance, covert activities and attacks on whistleblowers.

Release Date: We were thinking that this might break into the Sundance/Berlin line-up and while that didn’t materialize, Poitras has been active elsewhere.
