We Break Things

A film screening and talk about hacking as a form of activism on Thursday, April 27, 2017 from 2:00-4:00pm.

Slought and CAMRA are pleased to announce a screening of We Break Things followed by a Q&A with director Rebecca Wexler. The conversation will explore questions about hacking as a form of activism and documentary as a mode of scholarship. We Break Things is a documentary film directed by Rebecca Wexler and produced by Yale Visual Law Project. It documents the struggles of three hacker groups over issues that range from the war in Syria to fascists in Europe, commenting on the meaning of free speech and technological determinism. The film reveals the good, the bad, and the human consequences of hacker activism as shadowy figures come forward to share their loves, losses, and deepest motivations.
