After years researching her film about our increasingly surveillance nation, Laura Poitras began receiving encrypted e-mails from someone identifying himself as "citizen four," who was ready to blow the whistle on the massive covert surveillance programs run by U.S. intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Glenn Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be Edward Snowden. She brought her camera with her. The film that resulted from this series of tense encounters is absolutely sui generis in the history of cinema: a 100% real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes. (U.S., 2014, 118m, DCP, Radius TWC)

Land Arts of the American West, at the University of New Mexico, is an ongoing experiment in radical interdisciplinary arts pedagogy, with field based research and practice taking place throughout the American Southwest. This program emphasizes direct physical engagement within a full range of human interventions in the landscape, from pre-contact Native American architecture, rock paintings and petroglyphs to contemporary art, federal infrastructure, US military installations, ecological niches, and land use structures across the West. CCA will present a culmination of works from the 2012 Land Arts program, ranging from two-dimensional, sculptural, installation, multi-media, and performance based projects, inducing an interdisciplinary play of research and practice across place.
