About the film:
A speculative documentary that follows the simultaneous trajectories of the Unabomber and the growth of networked technologies. The film’s wide-ranging, associative links are modeled equally after the tangled psyche of its anti-hero,
who infamously railed against the technology and the technical features of the then emerging Internet. The result is a counter-intuitive double portrait of a technological system and one of its most infamous critics.
