Based on the book by University of Toronto Professor Ron Deibert, Black Code looks at how the internet and communications are monitored by governments in an attempt to control and censor citizens. An intensive study about the battle for cyberspace, the documentary examines the complex global impact that the internet has on free speech, privacy, and activism.
