The Patriot tells the extraordinary story of French-Israeli hacker Gregory Chelli (also known as Ulcan), a controversial fighter in the war against the leaders of an extreme antisemitic movement in France and their army of activists. Targeting family members and engaging in modern methods of cyberattack, Chelli often crosses the boundary between lawful and criminal actions. Dark and thought-provoking, this documentary asks how far should an individual be allowed to go in order to eradicate hate crime.
Warning: Film contains violence and depictions of both antisemitism and bullying behaviour that some viewers may find disturbing.
