With the astronomical boom of the internet and social media over the last decade, Black Code explores what these societal and technological advancements mean for things like privacy, activism, and free speech. On one side of the equation, governments and businesses are able to spy on citizens; on the other, due to the fact that the internet is essentially unpoliced, protest movements have been given a platform to enact their agendas.
Ultimately, the documentary proves that social media channels and the internet are far more influential than the average person recognizes and that our way of life has been significantly transformed in the wake of their introduction.
