We Are Legion
The story of Hactivists

Showing Thursday, June 20, in Cambridge [please download & distribute flyer]

An intellectual freedoms documentary based around the interpersonal triumphs, and defeats of the three main characters against the largest industry in the known universe. The media industry.

WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists, 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.

I went from ignorant to informed to impressed when presented with this tight and enjoyable compendium of all the major hacking incidents of the past several years." ~ Scott W, reviewing 'We Are Legion'
 

"A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good."

"Censorship reflects a society’s lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime.” ~Potter Stewart, Associate Justice of the US Supreme Court 1958-1981
