One of the more intriguing titles announced for the 2012 Slamdance Festival is Brian Knappenberger's We Are Legion: The Story Of The Hacktivists.
"We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists" is a documentary that 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 then follows Anonymous from 4chan to a full-blown movement with a global reach, one of the most transformative of our time.
As our culture becomes increasingly digital groups like Anonymous become increasingly powerful and Knappenberger looks to be giving some very insightful treatment to a largely ignored and often deliberately invisible movement. Take a look at the trailer below.
