"Cooperation between hackers, activists and journalists in the digital age creates new opportunities for investigative journalism. Through a series of films, the Exposing the invisible project highlights the work of people advancing the field of investigative journalism through such innovative forms of cooperation." -- MO Mondial Nieuvs
"So well done, concise, well-executed, well-paced, so good. Doc filmmakers can (and should) learn a lot from how to tell a data-driven story well, tell it quickly and use graphics" -- @fancynancy
