Snowden‘s film: Verax

 From:Hujiang English 
The short is titled "Verax" after the alias (Latin for "truthful") that Snowden used when speaking to journalists on encrypted chat services. It was made in five days.
Now, a group of amateur filmmakers, based in the city where Snowden initially fled, Hong Kong, have taken a stab at the global drama that continues to unfold.
现在,一群来自香港的业余影片制作人开始尝试以斯诺登为主角制作这部全球大戏。斯诺登曝光“棱镜”事件后首先逃往香港,而接下来他还准备继续曝光。

“While nearly every media outlet wanted to get their hands on him, we decided to produce a short fiction video to depict his experience in HK, and how it would have affected certain parties,” the group J.Shot Videos wrote on its YouTube page.
制作团队J.Shot Video在其YouTube主页上写道:“现在几乎所有媒体都想报道有关斯诺登的事件,所以我们决定以他在香港的经历为原型制作一个短片。”

“Namely, the CIA contingent based in HK who would be tasked to find Snowden. The Hong Kong police who would be stuck in between the U.S. and China, and the journalists who want to get the scoop.”
这个事件造成了多方影响,比如说驻扎在香港的中情局分队收到命令搜寻斯诺登,香港警方在美国和中国之间左右为难,各家媒体记者都想报道独家新闻等等。

Though filmmakers cast a uncanny doppelganger for Snowden, they said they knew too little about the character for him to be a prominent feature in the five-minute flick. “We really knew little about him,” they said. “Although he is a central character, he is not the most prominent. It is more about the maelstrom of events surrounding him.”
尽管制片人找到一位和斯诺登相貌极为相似的演员出演本片,但他们也表示由于对斯诺登了解太少,无法让他成为在这部片长5分钟的微电影里成为主角。制片方说:“我们真的对他知之甚少,尽管他是影片中心人物,但却不是最主要的。这部短片讲的更多的是围绕在他身边的种种大事件。”

The short is titled "Verax" after the alias (Latin for "truthful") that Snowden used when speaking to journalists on encrypted chat services. It was made in five days.
这部短片仅用五天便制作完成,片名为《Verax》,是斯诺登在用加密通话设备接受记者采访时的化名,也是拉丁语“真相”之意。
