MFF 2013’s documentary selection, DOWNLOADED, returns to Baltimore TONIGHT for a one-night-only screening at the MICA Brown Center as part of the Art + Music Film Series curated and hosted by DJ Spooky a.k.a. That Subliminal Kid (who also did the score for the film and will do a Q & A about open source culture after the screening). This event will take place in Falvey Hall and is FREE for all!
DOWNLOADED is a documentary by Alex Winterabout open source and free culture based on the story of Napster and features interviews withHenry Rollins, Billy Corgan, Beastie Boys’ Mike D,Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, and others.
“In tracing the rapid rise and gradual emasculation of Napster, the peer-to-peer file-sharing service that flourished in the 1990s, “Downloaded” tells a fascinating story about how college students harnessed the Internet to enable people to trade favorite songs, and how a blindsided music industry, ignorant of the Web’s potential, effectively shut them down.”
