In advance of the film's release, the film's producers are doing a SNOWDEN LIVE! event in movie theaters - a conversation between director Stone and the subject of the film, Snowden.
By some miracle, the Ward Avenue Cinema in La Crosse is one of the theaters hosting this special event on WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 14 at 6:30 p.m. You can get tickets here: http://www.fathomevents.com/event/snowden-live
Here is The Nation magazine on why Obama should pardon Snowden. Here is an article about the film's participation in this year's Comic Con.
