robert’s FILM BLOG
This blog has been created for an academic purpose.
In this post, I explore Brian Knappenberger’s documentary ‘The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz’ – how its portrayal of Swartz; his political beliefs, his personality, his humanity, help craft him as an empathetic figure, while also exploring how Knappenberger uses him as the face of the film’s political messages and undertones so they are easier to support.
In this post, I explore Brian Knappenberger’s documentary ‘We are Legion’ – how it portrays Anonymous as a community, how it embraces its members, and how they sparked a protest against the Church of Scientology, finding its humble roots on 4chan.
In this post, I explore Laura Poitras’ documentary ‘Citizenfour’ – how it uses filmic techniques to ground complex privacy-related issues, how it portrays Edward Snowden, and consider its impact on modern-day consumers.
