IMAGINE A NATION that offers a safe haven to whistleblowers risking their lives to stand up and speak the truth.

OPEN: Outlaws and Pioneers of the Electronic Frontier (formerly The Mouse That Roared), based in Iceland, investigates one of the most pressing challenges in the world today —how do we extend the hard-won rights of democratic societies into the digital space where most of our communication now takes place?
