Google and the World Brain

dir. Ben Lewis, USA 2013, 90’
A digital library containing every book in existence sounds like a great idea until we realize that it’s supposed to be owned by a private company whose priority is not really to spread knowledge and culture.

Behind the Iron Gate

dir. Heidrun Holzfeind, Austria/Poland/USA 2011, 55’
A clash between the myth of modernist architecture, actual communist defects and contemporary, ever changing social reality. What is it like to live nowadays in a housing estate which was once a symbol of prosperity?

The Net

dir. Lutz Dammbeck, Germany 2004, 120’
A genius mathematician first moved out to the forest and later became a terrorist who harassed the American intellectual elite. What does the ill-famed Unabomber have in common with the emergence of machines connected into a net whose structure is based on mathematics, logic and binary code?
Screening organized in collaboration with Goethe-Institut.
