Owned is an unreleased hacking documentary produced by Jennifer Read in 2002.
OWNED is a feature length documentary film that infiltrates the elusive world of computer hacking. From the inception of modern-day hacking by phone phreakers in the '60s to the current and future state of the hacking art, OWNED is an oral history of a law-spurning tech tradition that spans five decades. The controlled chaos of Las Vegas, as hundreds of hackers descend upon sin city for the Defcon convention gives way to the humid solitude of a wired, double-wide trailer in the bible-belt, as a lone hacker hijacks web pages. OWNED traverses the world of the hacker from their most public gatherings to their most private moments. Kevin Mitnick, dubbed by the New York Times "The FBI's Most Wanted Cybercrimminal" speaks for the first time about the crimes that led to his conviction. Luminary John Draper recalls the experimentation that led to the subversion of world-wide phone systems in what many consider to be the birth of hacking.In OWNED, the most respected, infamous and renowned figures in the subculture speak out and tell all.
