Just Films: Netizens
This event is free and open to the public.
Netizens delves into the lives of three women whose lives have been transformed by online harassment. Through an intimate, vérité approach, Netizens depicts the many forms digital abuse can take: non-consensual pornography, cyber-stalking, threats of violence, privacy invasions, impersonation, character attacks. The film challenges the notion cyber harassment is “only” online, showing the repercussions on targets’ lives: lost jobs, thwarted educations, damaged reputations, offline harassment and stalking, and countless hours devoted to containing attacks against a backdrop of mounting legal fees and psychological distress.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion and Q & A session.
