Event description

Description

We are Legion - The Story of the Hacktivists

The radical online community known as Anonymous has regularly featured in news stories around the world for attacks or 'raids' on organisations ranging from Sony, Mexican Drug Cartels, Mastercard, Visa and the Church of Scientology.

Anonymous see themselves as activists and defenders of freedom of speech and personal privacy. They have supported many issues with activities ranging from launching cyber attacks on governments to support the Arab Spring and supplying tech support for the Occupy movement.

The film made up of interviews with current members- - some after their release from prison and others awating trial - and follows the story from the start of Anonoymous on website 4Chan to where it is today - a global movement redefining civil disobedience for the digital age.
