Thanks to Helen <helen at creative-catalyst.com> for this info. Sounds
like a fantastic film. Maybe we can get some screenings happening in
Steal this Film - stockholm, summer 2006.
In 2006, a group of friends decided to make a film about filesharing
that *we* would recognise. There have been a few documentaries by
'old media' crews who don't understand the net and see peer-to-peer
organisation as a threat to their livelihoods. They have no reason to
represent the filesharing movement positively, and no capacity to
represent it lucidly. We wanted to make a film that would explore
this huge popular movement in a way that excited us, engaged us, and
most importantly, focussed on what we know to be the positive and
optimistic vision many filesharers and artists (they are often one)
have for the future of creativity.
"But libertarians do not defend the right of people to smash holes in the hull
of a crowded ship, or to let off bombs in city centres. Freedom does not
include the freedom to trash the habitat we all depend on for survival."
