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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film is most illuminating in showing how democratic practice can still find a new voice and innovative means with each generation.
Fresh: A cumulative feeling of urgency and you-are-there world-beating are key to the pic's seductive appeal, though lack of informed dissenting opinions reps an unfortunate editorial choice.
Fresh: Strong, entertaining portrait of a hard-to-pin-down online phenomenon.
Rotten: The doc's straightforward and chronological structure is its own worst enemy.
@Kyles- do you know what they have done? You would NOT call them children or punk kid activist if you know what they have done.
