The Antisocial Network
The filmmakers behind cult hit "Feels Good Man" elaborate on their Emmy and Sundance winning film with "The Antisocial Network." Telling the story of one of the most consequential websites in history, 4Chan.org, the film chronicles the experience of a few early “channers” who helped to create this once thriving community for self-described shut-ins. What began as niche website, bringing together a shared love of anime and memes—and porn...lots of porn—the site wound up becoming a powerful machine for warping reality and fomenting chaos in the real world. Now as adults, these channers look back on what they built, wondering if the genie can be put back in the bottle.
