Description
Edward Snowden and Aaron Swartz, are they heroes or traitors?

The government is entrusted to protect and serve the citizens of the United States, but at what cost? Sacrificing our privacy and/or giving up our freedom of speech? The controversial issues of net neutrality, copyright, and national security are among those director Ali Akbarzadeh touches on in his informative and passionate film. By highlighting the cases of Aaron Swartz and his fight against the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and Edward Snowden’s decision to leak classified information from the National Security Administration (NSA) Killswitch presents a different side not found in the textbooks. This documentary will open a conversation across different generations about something much bigger than the Internet – your civil rights. - Alexandra Avila
