We are legion The Story of the Hacktivists

Goes inside the world of Anonymous, the radical 'hacktivist' collective that has redefined civil disobedience for the digital age. Anonymous utilizes computers and computer networks to promote political ends, chiefly free speech, human rights, and information ethics, under the premise that technology can produce results similar to those of conventional acts of protest, activism, and civil disobedience. This film explores the historical roots of early hacktivist groups like Cult of the Dead Cow and Electronic Disturbance Theater and traces how they evolved and coalesced into Anonymous, the flull-blown movement with global reach and extraordinary power. Features interviews with current members, members recently returned from prison, others currently facing trial, writers, activists and major players in various "raids."
Special features: 22 minutes of additional material; official trailer.

A very good look into the history and the impact of the group called Anonymous. ~Mike
