Trivia

DEFCON has traditionally disallowed the sort of global filming of attendees and events as appears in the documentary. To mitigate this situation, the documentary crew wore bright orange vests with the word DOCUMENTARY on front and back, as well as the crew names, to enable attendees to see the crew was active and indicate they didn't want to be in the film, or to turn away from the filming.

Goofs

CHS & Cancer Omega started the DEF CON Shoot, not Deviant Ollam. He's simply the current organizer. See more »

Crazy Credits

During the final credits for the film, there is a sequence of DEFCON attendees declaring they can't say anything on camera about an unnamed subject. See more »

At the core of hacker culture
10 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

I feel part of digital culture, but not necessarily part of the strange realms of hackdom. I wanted to learn about it, and it felt a good idea to start with a documentary about the oldest hacker festival on the planet. But "Defcon: The Documentary" is not only a film about a convention, but about a culture, a way of life, about challenges in the past, and possibilities for the future. (I was especially pleased to see the debate about misogyny in tech circles.) A very rich film, full of sadness, joy, pride, and never-ending debate. Highly recommended... and it really doesn't matter if you know anything about hacker culture at all. Doubleplusgood!
