Do you love tech? Enjoy documentaries? Then are you going to love Digital Trends’ round-up of the best tech documentaries available for your viewing pleasure.
The King of Kong: A Fistful of Dollars – Probably the most obviously “fun” documentary on this list, “King of Kong” follows a narrative you’ll have seen in everything from “Rocky” to “The Karate Kid”; an underdog hero’s journey as he or she battles against the odds to make it in the world.
We Are Legion: The Story of the Hacktivists – “We Are Legion” is a documentary about “hacktivist” collective Anonymous. The film puts the Guy Fawkes mask-wearing hacktivists into a historical context by tracing their more modern 4chan incarnation back to the protest culture of the 1960s.
The Man with the Movie Camera – It’s easy to think that the world we live in now — with the arrival of drones, robots, AI and 3D printing — is seeing more profound change than at virtually any other point in history. This documentary, released in 1929, will challenge that belief.
All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace – A sprawling, 180-minute documentary that was screened in three separate parts, 2011’s “All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace” is the work of British filmmaker Adam Curtis. Far more of a personal nonfiction essay than a fly-on-the-wall documentary, its central premise is that computers have singularly failed to liberate humanity in the way their countercultural forefathers promised.
We Live in Public – The notion that, to some degree, social media has made our private lives public isn’t really up for debate in 2017. But the idea that this was possible — or desirable — wasn’t quite so clear in the 1990s. Step forward Josh Harris, one of the first dot-com millionaires, and a man described as “the greatest internet pioneer you’ve never heard of.”
