The Troll Under The Facebook Bridge.

When a man named Matt came to St. Joseph Missouri, no one knew how he would use social media to disrupt the lives of so many people. This documentary looks at how people can get away with doing incredible amounts of damage with little to no consequence. Even when they threaten to commit acts of terrorism at nuclear facilities.

Many of our films will be followed by a Q&A with the film makers and subjects of the film following each screening.
