In remote villages in the Amazon Jungle and Andes Mountains, a group of children are about to gain access to computers and the internet for the first time. WEB documents their experience with the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) program, and ponders both the benefits and complications that are arising from our increasing digital interconnectivity. Alongside the poignant and sometimes humorous local stories, WEB includes interviews with leading thinkers on the internet including Foursquare founder Dennis Crowley, Wikipedia’s Jimmy Wales, and OLPC founder Nicholas Negroponte.
WEB is available for booking at universities, museums, community centers, film festivals, and other non-profit organizations. Please contact us to purchase public performance rights. Your screening fee will depend on the size of your audience, your price of admission, and whether or not you will advertise.
