Extending far beyond the confines of Google and Facebook, there is a vast, unseen area of the Internet called the Deep Web. This mysterious cyberspace serves as an outlet for anonymous communication and was home to the Silk Road, the online black market notorious for drug trafficking. The intricacies of this alternate Internet caught the attention of the general public with the October 2013 arrest of Ross William Ulbricht - the convicted 30-year-old entrepreneur accused of being 'Dread Pirate Roberts', the online pseudonym of the Silk Road creator and operator. Making its World Television Premiere this spring, Deep Web - an EPIX Original Documentary written, directed and produced by Alex Winter (Downloaded) - seeks to unravel this tangled web of secrecy, accusation, and criminal activity, and explores how the outcome of Ulbricht's trial will set a critical precedent for the future of technological freedom around the world.
