Categories: Digital Activism, Film, Governance, Ideas, Politics, Technology

Artists based in Sweden have launched a crowd-funding campaign [1] to support and sustain their film project “Hackitat” [2]. The documentary aims to highlight hackers, “the people building a nation on the Internet”, and searches for answers to: “What compels some people to spend a lot of time and energy on setting up servers, creating programs and even committing crimes to help people in a dictatorship in another country to communicate freely?”
