After meeting Christine Assange in September 2011, I began working on the "Did You Have any Idea?" series - 24 films about the upstart Australian start-up that changed the world. It was a labour of love, for me, and the many personalities and public figures that gave their time in support of the organisation. Over 2 years, I made quite a number of other films about Wikileaks, and for/about the Wikileaks Party.
Anonymous artists and hacktivists are a principled lot, and through firewalls of failure, their mission is to seek out the truth and publish the news, in the public interest. I am not a hacker, nor a downloader of much besides software, plugins and a little music, all of which I pay for. I do however admire the courage and moral fibre of hacktivists and whistle-blowers, when they expose wrong-doing at any level. Conversely, I deplore a government, institution or business that shadow-blocks transparency - be it by vow, contract or threat.
I also enjoy the pranky meme And its scorn for the old regime...
