The documentary film "Black Code" will be screened on October 18, 2018 from 5:00pm-7:00pm on AU's Tenley Campus Yuma Hall Room YT16 as part of the course "Cyber Flash Points" co-taught by AU Internet Governance Lab Faculty Director Dr. Laura DeNardis and Faculty Fellow Professor Jennifer Daskal. The screening is open to the AU community.

Based on Professor Ron Deibert’s book of the same name, the film exposes how governments around the world are manipulating the Internet to control and censor their citizens. It explores the ideas of citizenship and democracy, and the complex impact the Internet has had on free speech, privacy, and activism.
