Black Code

Directed by Nicholas de Pencier

Release Date: April 14

Starring Felipe Altenfeldor, Ron Deibert, Wjd Dhnie
Shot, produced and directed by Canadian filmmaker Nicholas de Pencier (Manufactured Landscapes, Watermark), Black Code — inspired by the book of the same name by University of Toronto professor Ronald J. Deibert — is a gripping, powerful and stunning documentary about the internet’s global impact on free speech and privacy, and how governments across the world use it to track and censor citizens. The film, which debuted to strong reviews at the Toronto International Film Festival this past year, has been dubbed the post-Snowden film — and like Citizenfour, you won’t view the internet the same way after seeing it.
