This exceptional documentary will educate us about an important world of which most of us have little knowledge.

The film traces the history of online activism and computer hacking.   It explains Anonymous, the radical "hacktivist" collective that has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age. The film presents live footage of actions, and it includes interviews with current members, members recently released from prison, others facing trial, writers, activists, and major players in various Anonymous "raids."  It outlines Anonymous' evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown movement with global reach, the most transformative civil disobedience of our time.

**Winner of 8 Documentary Film Festival Awards**

"Essential viewing...The general spirit of authority-tweaking pranksterism is infectious." —The Hollywood Reporter.
