That’s when Poitras, with help from the late Participant executive Diane Weyermann, made a deal with Goldin to do a series of audio interviews at her house. “I knew it was going to give me a kind of intimacy that wouldn’t be there if there was a camera and a crew,” said Poitras. “It was just an instinct.” Her Oscar-nominated film My Country, My Country, the first film in her Post-9/11 Trilogy, documents the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The second film of the trilogy, the Emmy-nominated The Oath, documents Guantanamo Bay Prison and the U.S. “war on terror.”I ask Poitras if she enjoyed making Risk. She laughs, which feels like an answer in itself. “Did I enjoy it? No, I can’t say I did. Filming is always hard, and this was particularly hard. I knew Julian was going to be furious with the film, and I don’t have any joy with that. I know he’s polarising, but there is no doubt he’s a really significant historical figure in the work that he has done, which has transformed journalism, and I think he understood ahead of many people how the internet was going to change global politics.” So while we continue to advocate for better access to harm reduction and policy changes that prioritise the wellbeing– rather than the criminalisation – of our communities, so too must we call for justice. Poitras and Glenn Greenwald reported on Snowden and the NSA for "The Guardian" and "The Washington Post," and earned two of journalism's most prestigious prizes - the Pulitzer and the George Polk Awards in 2014.

I would assume that we are heading in the right direction when an administration that uses terms like “fake news” and “enemy of the people” to inflame its base goes away. But you made “Citizenfour” during the Obama Administration. Just how much do you think the situation in this country will improve for investigative journalism?
