freedom downtime the kevin mitnick story

Freedom Downtime is a 2001 documentary film directed by Emmanuel Goldstein under the banner of  2600 Films. The documentary tells the story of Kevin Mitnick through the interviews with relatives, friends, lawyers, and experts in the computer and civil liberties arena. 

Freedom Downtime tries to uncover the reasons why the authorities are so scared of Mitnick as well as define what exactly he did. Surprisingly, no real evidence is ever presented by the authorities to back up the sensationalist claims in mass media.

A cross-country journey uncovers some realities of the hacker culture as well as the sobering fact that so many technically young adept people are being imprisoned.
