Kino Independent Features presents at the BLACK LION
WE ARE LEGION: THE STORY OF THE HACKTIVISTS
WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists takes us inside the complex culture and roots of Anonymous. The film explores early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater and then moves to Anonymous’ raucous and unruly beginnings on the website 4Chan. Through interviews with current members, some recently returned from prison, others currently awaiting trial, writers, academics and major players in various “raids,” WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists traces the collective’s evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown movement with a global reach, the most transformative civil disobedience in decades.
