Never has the role of the whistleblower been more in the public eye. They are the warriors of the digital age, fighting for transparency and privacy in an advancing technological world. Why do they risk everything to do it and can their cause be called a patriotic duty?
Digital Dissidents are the warriors of the digital age: Republican patriots, radical anarchists and cyber-hippies fight side by side for transparency and privacy in the digital world. For that, they are in prison, live in exile or have lost their careers and families. While many people celebrate them as heroes, critics, intelligence services and companies condemn their actions as an assault on our security. Why are they doing it? What are their motives?
The documentary “Digital Dissidents” is part of the transmedia event SUPERNERDS.
