Cyberactivism Documentaries


I’m not sure if I ever posted about this before, I talk a lot on different platforms so I no longer sure what I say where and when O_o

Nevertheless, I watch lots of documentaries, you can say that part of my passion is to watch documentaries on almost anything, but mainly, on technology, politics and the interwoven relationship between the both. This is a list of interesting documentaries were made on different topics, from whistleblowing, to investigative journalism, hacking, the dark web and the internet. As usual, this is a never-ending list that will keep growing until… who knows when ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
