Screening: We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists (2012)

March 16, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We Are Legion-The Story of the Hacktivists-2012

WE ARE LEGION: THE STORY OF THE HACKTIVISTS (2012, Dir. Brian Knappenberger, 93′) takes us inside the complex culture and history of Anonymous. The film explores early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater, and then moves to Anonymous’ own raucous and unruly beginnings on the website 4Chan.Through interviews with current members – some recently returned from prison, others still awaiting trial – as well as writers, academics and major players in various “raids,” WE ARE LEGION traces the collective’s breathtaking evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown, global movement, one armed with new weapons of civil disobedience for an online world.
