Written and directed by Messiah Rhodes, associate producer at VICE, Hack Back chronicles the lives of three people, living with pangs of alienation, loneliness, and the struggle found in a life filled with tenuous low wage employment. Our (anti)heroes are led into a cyber underworld through encrypted messages and promises of vast fortunes.
The series is designed to demystify digital security in a subliminal and fun way, teaching audiences both the importance and ease of use.
Screening of the first three episodes will be followed by a panel discussion with writer/director Messiah Rhodes and members of ReThink LinkNYC, a grassroots organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance.
