Future Radicals (Opening Shot)
On the frontline of a cyber war, masked vigilantes known as 'Anonymous' fight for internet freedom. The media has called them 'hackers on steroids' and an 'internet hate machine'. 'Anonymous' has hacked, blocked and defaced some of the world's most 'secure' sites and exposed them to the world in an effort to highlight freedom of information breaches on the internet. Future Radicals offers a rare insight into 'Anonymous' and the activities that have secured it some of the world's most powerful enemies through interviews with those involved. Arrests have occurred around the globe, but are they criminals or cyber heroes? You decide.
OPENING SHOT is an initiative between Screen Australian and ABC TV that gives voice to a new generation of filmmakers - with stories to match. Filmmaking teams, all with a director under 35 years, have been given the opportunity to create a prime time half hour film that not only develops their long form filmmaking skills but also fires an (opening) shot in to the national conversation about Australia today.
