About the Movie

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 early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater, then moves to Anonymous' raucous beginnings on the website 4chan. The documentary traces Anonymous’ evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown movement with a global reach, the most transformative civil disobedience of our time. A FilmBuff Presentation.

Fresh: Strong, entertaining portrait of a hard-to-pin-down online phenomenon. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 16, 2012

Rotten: The doc's straightforward and chronological structure is its own worst enemy. – Tomas Hachard, Slant Magazine, Oct 14, 2012
