The new Participant Media investigative series promises to tell "the stories of ordinary people going to extraordinary lengths to uncover breaches of public trust by governments and private institutions."
Knappenberger was the director of "The Internet's Own Boy," a stellar documentary film about the late developer, organizer, and tech freedom activist Aaron Swartz. He also directed "We Are Legion," the hacktivism movie about Anonymous.
"We're in a weird moment," says Knappenberger. "There seems to be this wave of anger and frustration in America, and I think there's good reason for that."
