Overview

The 'deep web' is a term used to describe the unexposed side of the internet, containing private information like banking data and administrative code. Individuals interested in greater online privacy rights have been attracted to it for privacy and freedom it provides. Websites like Silk Road have operated in the shadows of the internet to offer an online marketplace for buying and selling drugs.

In Deep Web, filmmaker Alex Winter highlights the U.S. government's pursuit to shut down Silk Road leading to the eventual arrest of Ross Ulbricht, the man accused to be Dread Pirate Roberts, creator and operator of the Silk Road website. Winter is an actor, director, and producer best known for the feature-length films Freaked and Fever.

Narrated by Keanu Reeves, Deep Web sheds a light on a legal battle over the darkest corners of the internet.
