Brian Knappenberger‘s 2011 doc We Are Legion: The Story of Hacktivists explores the advent of Anonymous, and the massive cybernetic reactions to the world’s current political climate. The film will makes it premiere at the 2012 Slamdance Festival. Read the official synopsis:

“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.”
