PressPausePlay – A Film about Hope, Fear and Digital Culture:
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities. But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era.
kurze und sehr sehenswerte doku von resident advisor ueber berlins technovergangenheit und bestandaufnahme zur aktuellen situation:
For the third edition of Real Scenes, RA and Bench go to one of the most special places for electronic music in the world: Berlin. When the Berlin Wall came down in 1989, techno became the underground soundtrack to the reunion between East and West. In recent years, it’s become an international destination for ravers—a cheap place to party with clubs that are renowned throughout the world.
Techno has become a business in the meantime. Yet Berlin still maintains a credibility that other cities lack. To understand why, RA and Bench went to the German capital eager to find out about its unique history and the reasons behind its continued relevance.

65 jahre und auf der strasse gegen nazis.
Irmela Mensah-Schramm is well known in Berlin for her effort against Nazi symbols, signs and slogans in public space. The 65 years old anti-fascist graffiti-grandma documents Nazi graffiti and stickers before she buffs them and is in that way a perfect example for modern anti-fascist work.
Vincenzo Caruso and Fabrizio Mario Lussu are currently working on a video documentary called “The Hate Destroyer” about her work, the ideals and Nazi graffiti in general!

Modulations: Cinema for the Ear:
Documentarian Lara Lee, a U.S.-based, Brazilian-born filmmaker, skated through virtual reality, cyber-stimuli, and recreational technologies in her fast-paced Synthetic Pleasures (1995), notable for the memorable “surf’s up” sequence inside a Japanese indoor beach with rolling waves. Where Synthetic Pleasures attempted to explore all aspects of the digital domain, Modulations focuses just on modern music-rave parties, techno dance music, and the history of electronic music (John Cage, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Robert Moog), moving on to ’70s innovators (Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder), hip-hop pioneers, and more recent club-scene creators (Prodigy, Moby, Money Mark, Future Sound of London, The Invisibl Skratch Piklz), capturing diverse dance-track styles (house, trip-hop, acidhouse, ambient). The 35mm film brings together archival material, video clips, concert footage, and numerous interviews with musicians.

WikiRebels – The Documentary:
From the description:
“Exclusive rough-cut of first in-depth documentary on WikiLeaks and the people behind it!
From summer 2010 until now, Swedish Television has been following the secretive media network WikiLeaks and its enigmatic Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange.
Reporters Jesper Huor and Bosse Lindquist have traveled to key countries where WikiLeaks operates, interviewing top members, such as Assange, new Spokesperson Kristinn Hrafnsson, as well as people like Daniel Domscheit-Berg who now is starting his own version – Openleaks.org!
Where is the secretive organization heading? Stronger than ever, or broken by the US? Who is Assange: champion of freedom, spy or rapist? What are his objectives? What are the consequences for the internet?”

Internet: The Movie
is a video made in 1997 to explain the then-fairly-young internet to individuals looking to get in on the action. However, what’s really funny to see in this movie is the ridiculous ‘plot’ in between the educational parts, and to try to make sense of most of the included segments’ relevance to the explanation of the internet itself. But then 40 minutes of content would be lost. The beginning is really some of the best parts (in that they are the worst parts) of how the movie sought to relate the internet to people. It trails off at the end as eventually they just start explaining how to do things in… Netscape. It’s worth it to watch just because somewhere in the middle, the video suggests that using the internet is too hard and tells you that you should go make a sandwich instead.

Tesla – Master of Lightning:
Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is probably the first cross-over scientist. He is known and respected in scientific and engineering circles, but he also appeals to a youthful and general audience with no formal background in science. Today there is considerable and growing interest in Tesla, but there is lacking a comprehensive and accurate picture of his life and accomplishments. A major documentary has never been made about him. Much of the available information has been highly speculative, not based on the historical documentary evidence. It was our objective to make an in-depth documentary that is both entertaining and scientifically and historically accurate. A great deal of the story is told in Tesla’s own words, drawing from his autobiographical and scientific writings.

a documentary short on Royal Street Tattoo written by Bijani Casalan and directed by Michael Howell. Although Live Free features Royal Street Tattoo and “covers the philosophy of tattooing as seen from the eyes of the artists at the shop” the documentary goes much deeper.
