The Hacker Wars opens in New York on October 17, 2014.
The Hacker Wars, a feature-length documentary film, directed by Vivien Lesnik Weisman, will open theatrically in New York October 17th 2014 at the Village East Cinema (181 – 189 2nd Ave New York City, NY 10012).
It is under consideration for the 2015 Academy Awards for Best Documentary.
Ripped from international headlines, The Hacker Wars takes you to the front lines of the high-stakes battle over the fate of the Internet, freedom and privacy. The Hacker Wars tells the tales of the anarchic troll provocateur Andrew “weev” Aurenheimer, prodigy hacker hero Jeremy Hammond, and incendiary watchdog journalist Barrett Brown — three larger than life characters whose separate quests to expose the secrets of empire hurled them into a fateful collision course with shadowy corporations, the FBI, and ultimate betrayal by one of their own.
Featuring interviews with Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Chris Hedges, NSA whistleblower Thomas Drake, The Hacker Wars traces the steps that led from the Internet’s murkiest corners to the heavy shadow of censorship and a century’s worth of prison time.
