The moviemakers released another clip from their TPB: AFK (The Pirate Bay: Away From Keyboard). The producers are planning to release three of them in total in September, one in each two weeks.
A couple of Swedish filmmakers have been working on a documentary about the world’s largest BitTorrent tracker website The Pirate Bay for a long time now. The first clip on the documentary was released earlier this month, titled TPB: AFK (The Pirate Bay: Away From Keyboard).
The movie tells about the 3 co-owners of the most popular torrent tracker website worldwide and their adventures in years-long battle with rights owners. Actually, the fight resulted in a conviction for the facilitation of copyright violation last spring, but the final decision has yet to be made at the hearing with the Svea Court of Appeals in the end of September.
The documentary has been worked on over two years, and shows three computer fans who managed to revolutionize the idea of digital media distribution with the only help of their hobby website. The story is about Anakata, a paranoid cyber libertarian, Tiamo, a beer crazy computer fanatic, and Brokep, a Greenpeace activist, all three unintentionally having become the reason for the US government to threaten the Swedish one with trade sanctions. The movie shows what the most famous pirates in the world had to go through on a personal level.
Today the movie makers have released another series of the movie, the second one, but not the last. The first one came out several weeks ago, while the third one is also planned to come out this month. The movie is neither a fan movie about the favorite tracker, nor a journalistic article expressing the views on copyright infringement issue and the confrontation of pirates and rights holders. The filmmakers call it the observational, character-driven video about guys turning their hobby website into the start of a worldwide political movement. The entire movie is planned to be presented to the world after the trial is over, which is around the middle of the next month.
The movie makers managed to reach their goal of $25,000 to cover the expenses for renting a studio and paying to a film editor, so The Pirate Bay: Away From Keyboard will become a reality soon.
