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 the historical roots of early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater, then moves to Anonymous' raucous, often hilarious and unruly beginnings in the online forum 4chan. Through interviews with current members in disguise, people recently returned from prison or currently facing trial, writers, academics, activists and major players in various "raids," WE ARE LEGION: The Story of the Hacktivists traces the collective's evolution from merry pranksters to a full-blown movement with a global reach, the most transformative civil disobedience of our time.
