HACKER

a film by Alexander Biedermann

HACKER

Germany | 2009

Synopsis
In his debut, Alexander Biedermann encounters five hackers and questions both their very existence and the impetus for their actions. The film portrays hackers, who constantly re-define borders of computer systems. They all associate their experience with a particular feeling of power: Only a few command lines enabled them to manipulate crucial features of modern society.
Though regarding themselves as keepers and guardians, the legal grey area and the conflicting individual goals and social necessities become the touchstone of their biographies.
HACKER is a portrait which follows human traces in the data network, uncovering personal stories hidden beneath its surface.
