About the Filmmaker

Films in our archives made by “Anonymous” are at the request of filmmakers in fear of government or societal reprisal for broaching taboo subjects. While WVN resists censorship and other obstacles to free expression by facilitating a space for our filmmakers’ subversive voices to be heard, we uphold their safety above all else.
