Killswitch (2014)

US, 2014, 72 min, English OV; Regie: Ali Akbarzadeh

The Internet is under attack. Free speech, innovation and democracy are all up for grabs.

Killswitch is about the battle for control over the Web. One of the decisive struggles of our age. World renowned scholars and Internet freedom advocates Lawrence Lessig, Tim Wu and Peter Ludlow frame the story of two young hactivists, Aaron Swartz and Edward Snowden, who symbolize the disruptive and dynamic nature of the Internet. Their lives parallel one another as they free information to millions online, putting them directly in the cross-hairs of the most powerful interests in the world.

Will this be a cautionary tale of what happens when you dare to take on elite power structures? Or will it be the spark that ignites a revolution that will redefine democracy in the digital age?

Im Anschluss an die Filmvorführung:

Filmgespräch mit Erich Moechel (Journalist und Autor) über die entscheidende Bedeutung des Internets für unsere Bestrebungen, die Welt zum Positiven zu verändern.
