**About the film: ** When indie comic character Pepe the Frog becomes an unwitting icon of hate, his creator Matt Furie fights to bring Pepe back from the darkness. A Frankenstein-meets-Alice in Wonderland journey of an artist battling to regain control of his creation. The film also lends frightening clarity to the growing political power of the Reddit and 4Chan, but also offers a message of hope that goodness can overcome very dark forces.
