CYPHERPUNK CINEMA is a book and a documentary about the cypherpunks and the movie pirates. It’s about the new Robinhoods who risk their freedom and safety to make anonymous data-sharing and p2p possible on the Internet, and it’s an intimate look at guys like you and me whose lives got totally transformed along the way. It’s about a generation of cinephiles who never gets the limelight: the unsung heroes and weirdos who spend hours cleaning up the audio or adjusting the color tone of a stealthily recorded movie. And those who write the srts and subs we call subtitles! There is also a sense of bitter competition and rivalry among the pirates to get their movie out there first before someone else does. Sadly, some even rat out the other to the police. For what? I don’t know. But I want to find out. I want to meet these guys and discover their reasons and fundamental beliefs which have influenced and changed the lives of millions of people around the world and educated, yes educated, a whole new generation of technophiles and movie buffs.
Please back us; we need your support. Without your backing, this is mission impossible. The world is filled with people who desperately want to learn. These are the people who rely on p2p and file-sharing networks i.e. the Web, not for movies... That is secondary. These are the people who aren't interested in money, but a kind of true enlightenment which is possible only through knowledge and true education. They are the ones who download lectures, tutorials, interviews, talks, books and all sorts of study materials from the Internet. And we simply cannot deny them this access which they have to this collective wisdom of our civilization, because they are the ones who are going to become the future statesmen, politicians, university professors and policy-makers. They are the ones who are going to change this world for better.”
