After emerging as an Internet activist, programming prodigy Aaron Swartz was indicted on multiple federal charges. Soon after, at the age of 26, he was found dead—an apparent suicide his family and supporters blamed on the feds’ aggressive prosecution. This dynamic tribute, incorporating home videos and featuring Swartz’s closest confidants, reveals a prematurely silenced fighter for information freedom. Official selection: Sundance Film Festival, SXSW
