We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists
WE ARE LEGION: THE STORY OF THE HACKTIVISTS takes us inside the world of Anonymous, the radical “hacktivist” collective that has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age. The film explores the historical roots of early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater and traces how they evolved and coalesced into Anonymous, a full-blown movement with global reach and extraordinary power. Around the world, governments and corporations are taking notice as this loosely organized underground group brings down websites and interrupts commerce. Could this be the beginning of a new and powerful voice for democratic ideals or another rogue player to beware?
