The radical hacktivist collective known only as “Anonymous” has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age. Featuring interviews with current members as well as hackers returning from prison or facing trials, this film gives an inside look at how Anonymous has become the most powerful global Internet freedom movement of our time, and one of the greatest representations of the transformative influence of digital media and its growing political capital. This documentary charts the history of Anonymous from its humble beginnings on the web site 4chan to its current influential role in protests around the world, including the 2011 Egyptian revolution, showing just how crucial technology has become as a tool for social change.


In Person: Director Brian Knappenberger.
