About 14 million children are enslaved today worldwide - more than at any time in history. Now, in a remarkable journey across five continents, six children tell their stories. Children are bought and sold like bags of sugar. They break stones in quarries, clean and cook for their owners, work the plantations and service Western sex tourists. They are beaten, abused, denied any contact with their family and often worked to death. Many of their captors do not see the practice as wrong.

Election Day itself was a deception on a massive scale and marked the beginning of the period in which Mousavi was put under house arrest; Ahmadinejad seized power and demonstrators were shot.

In January 2013, Poitras was several years into making a film about surveillance in the post-9/11 era when she started 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 the NSA and other intelligence agencies. In June 2013, she and Greenwald flew to Hong Kong for the first of many meetings with the man who turned out to be 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 percent real-life thriller unfolding minute by minute before our eyes.

This is the unknown story of secret negotiations between the Taliban and America to build a pipeline through Afghanistan. When America invaded Afghanistan in 2001, the stated aim was to dismantle Al-Qaeda, denying it a safe base of operations by removing the Taliban from power. But Al-Qaeda claimed that the attack on the Twin Towers was a response to the Bush administration's threats to attack Afghanistan if its demands for pipeline rights were not met. According to sources, Taliban officials were told they could accept a 'carpet of gold' or a 'carpet of bombs.'

The Internet dates more quickly than almost any other contemporary cultural signifier. This is what gave The Social Network much of its leverage: that it was a period film about things that had happened six or seven years previously. Swedish director Simon Klose's absorbing, stirringly indignant but also rather melancholic documentary about the industry speared decline and fall of the world's biggest file sharing website has a similar effect. Torrents? File-sharing? The Pirate Bay? It all feels like ancient history. Which proves the documentary's main point: that in the end, a system with an unlimited appetite and budget for litigation won out against the cyber libertarians.
