"The structures of power that exist are working to their own ends."
Edward Snowden

Synopsis

The Internet is under attack. Free speech, innovation, and democracy are all up for grabs.

Killswitch is about the battle for control over the Internet. Lawrence Lessig, Tim Wu and Peter Ludlow frame the story of two young hactivists, Aaron Swartz & Edward Snowden, who symbolize the disruptive and dynamic nature of the Internet. Their lives parallel one another as they free information to millions on the Internet, putting them directly in the cross-hairs of the most powerful interests in the world. Will this be a cautionary tale of what happens when you dare to take on elite power structures? Or will it be the spark that ignites a revolution that will redefine democracy in the digital age?

Featuring

"Sharing isn't immoral... it's a moral imperative."
Aaron Swartz
