The second part of “Steal This Film” is currently in production. The documentary will cover the (r)evolution of piracy, and p2p in general. The filmmakers interviewed people like Bram Cohen, and admins from The Pirate Bay and Mininova, but they also want to hear from YOU! Get your 15 frames of fame, and upload your message to the RIAA and MPAA.
The first Steal This Film is a documentary about The Pirate Bay raid and if you haven’t seen it yet, it’s definitely worth downloading. However, part II is an even more prestigious project and will give an in depth view on piracy and P2P.
TorrentFreak talked to a representative of the League of Noble Peers who said: “It’s been about a year since we finished the first film, and it’s given us a lot of time to reflect. It’s safe to say that this film is more reflective, and we have really been trying to get to grips with some of the questions the first film raised. We realized that to go forwards, we had to go back, people may be a bit surprised about *how far* back.”
As a TorrentFreak representative, I was fortunate enough to be present when the STF crew interviewed Brokep from The Pirate Bay and Erik from Mininova, and experienced first hand how dedicated they are to turn this project into a great film, that we’ll all want to “steal”.
And there is more, as one of the producers of the film explains: “We can reveal that a certain Mr. Cohen, is in the film. as well as some other big names. In short it’s an interesting moment for us. We have all this material and all these ideas, and we’re working hard to make a film that will be a small part of the conversation in the coming months.”
But the film needs your help, a documentary about P2P and piracy wouldn’t be complete without input from you, the peers. So, if you are interested in doing some voice-overs, or want to record your personal message for the content owners, join the League of Noble Peers:
