ALL CREATURES WELCOME

ALL CREATURES WELCOME

The world wide web would structurally allow a radical renewal of democracy, but more and more states are drifting towards authoritarian societies and en passant the largest surveillance machinery of human history has been created. The events of the Chaos Computer Club (CCC), Europe's biggest association of hackers, are a kind of utopian real-world reflection of the Internet. Together with the filmmaker and the slogan "use hacking as a mindset" we immerse in a documentary adventure game, explore "planet nerd" and do away with common clichés. We see how the hacker culture meets these challenges of our time and becomes a possible blueprint of social upheaval.
