About Face Senior Editor and Filmmaker Michael Vollmann Premiering New Film At Sundance 2015

Our People

About Face Media’s Senior Editor Michael Vollmann is going to Sundance!  He’ll premiere his newest short film, “The 414s: The Original Teenage Hackers” in Park City this January.

Produced by About Face director and frequent Vollmann collaborator Chris James Thompson (ESPN 30 For 30 MECCA, The Jeffrey Dahmer Files), here’s a bit about the film.

The short documentary traces the story of the 414s—a group of Milwaukee teenagers who, in 1983, broke into dozens of high-profile computer systems, resulting in a media frenzy that terrified a nation previously ignorant to the capabilities of computer interconnectivity. By unearthing a little-known story that is increasingly pertinent in 2014—when hacking makes the news nearly daily—the film considers the power young people have to use cutting edge technology to revolutionize the world.

If you’re on your way to the Utah mountains in a few weeks, you can check the schedule and see Michael’s new film at the Sundance site.

Congratulations to Michael and Chris and we’ll see you on the slopes!
