Up Next: Google and the World Brain November 27

Google and the World Brain posterOur next event is on Wednesday November 27th and we are thrilled to present the Victoria premiere of a very important and very chilling film Google and the World Brain.  

UPDATE Nov 14, 2013  Today U.S. Circuit Judge Denny Chin dismissed a lawsuit from the Authors Guild, ruling that Google’s Book Project constituted fair use under the law. Paul Aiken, the Authors Guild’s executive director, said in a statement today that the ruling is a “fundamental challenge” to copyrights and that his group plans to appeal. Read more about this troubling and precedent-setting decision here and here.

Here’s what filmmaker Ben Lewis said in response: Holy S**t. No doubt the next US court judgement will be that snooping on everyone’s emails, phonecalls, facebook and skype communications is also legal.”  Our discussion panel will have a lot to say about all this. Don’t miss this event!

OPEN CINEMA Sponsors REACTOR on November 13

We are also thrilled to be sponsoring the Victoria premiere of a short film called REACTOR, by Ian Mackenzie. Reactor explores post-Fukushima Japan and the unfolding crisis. How can we see the shadow of our existing paradigm? How can we awaken towards a world that works for all life?
