We all knew an Edward Snowden movie was coming; we just didn’t know it would be this soon. Four Hong Kong filmmakers posted a five-minute film about Snowden’s mission to expose the U.S. government’s mass surveillance program — clearly they didn’t waste any time (is this story even close to being over yet?).

While Snowden’s saga is still in progress, the amateur filmmakers wanted to strike while the iron was hot. “To be the first one to really do anything about it … it was quite invigorating,” cinematographer and editor Edwin Lee told AFP.

The short film — called Verax, which means “truth-teller” in Latin and was the codename Snowden used when communicating with journalists — uses amateur actors and was shot at a clip (filming lasted just four days), but hey, they were here first! Check it out for yourself below:
