Black Code says
The internet has transformed how political activists can resist, mobilize and create change in our increasingly polarized and paranoid world. Black Code takes you around the globe—to Brazil, Pakistan, Sweden, Syria, Tibet and an innovative research centre at the University of Toronto—where people are developing new ways to fight oppression with technology. But with increased surveillance capabilities, governments are in turn harnessing this power to monitor citizens and keep them in line. In this thrilling TIFF 2016 favourite, Toronto-based filmmaker Nicholas de Pencier (Four Wings and a Prayer, Watermark) takes an unflinching look at this ongoing high stakes battle, revealing the internet’s complex impact on freedom, privacy and activism.

Director Nicholas de Pencier and Munk School of Global Affairs' Citizen Lab director Ron Deibert will be in attendance for Q&As following the Friday (6:15 p.m.) and Saturday (4:00 p.m.) screenings.
