Netizens' delves into the lives of three women who are transformed by online harassment. Carrie Goldberg is an attorney in New York City, who launches an internet privacy and sexual assault law firm in the wake of her own digital abuse. Tina Reine, in West Palm Beach, is a successful businesswoman whose career is derailed after an ex-boyfriend creates numerous reputation-harming websites. San Francisco-based Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of a popular web-series, Feminist Frequency, who is the target of a cyber-mob’s ongoing campaign of rape and death threats. Through a cinematic, verité approach, the film challenges the notion harassment is ‘only’ online, depicting the immense toll on targets’ lives and following as they confront digital abuse and strive for equality and justice online. As the internet becomes the next frontier of civil rights, ‘Netizens’ bears witness as a courageous wave of individuals reshape the web as we know it.
