Who controls the web? On whose behalf? Is there anyone that makes sure that every citizen has access to affordable high speed internet connection? How free are we really to access content? To express ourselves? To keep our privacy?
The way we use the Internet is the result of technical, political and social decisions. These issues are being decided right now, mostly by governments and corporations, and we are already late if we want to defend our rights. Freenet is a wake up call for citizens around the world to respond to these threats: a film about the web, in collaboration with the web.
Come and join us, tell us your story, submit videos, suggestions for interviews or even interesting links. Be part of the creative process of our collaborative documentary film project about the future of freedom on the internet.
Your video could be selected to be included in final cut of the documentary and will help us find cases and tell the various stories that make the story of one network. An Internet that can still be free.
