1904 Franklin St
You are cordially invited to join Media Alliance for a free screening of the feature-length documentary BARBERSHOP PUNK!
A small, focused discussion group will take place after the screening. We are considering sponsoring the film and want YOUR INPUT! Is it a good tool for our campaign for Network Neutrality? Share your opinions on its objectives, messages, audiences and outcomes!
BARBERSHOP PUNK (dir. Georgia Sugimura Archer and Kristin Armfield, 2010) is about many players in the struggle for a truly free Internet, but at its core it is about an unlikely hero taking on the system. The documentary is a classic David and Goliath story that plays out within the internet neutrality debate and larger context of censorship and access…Electronic Foundation Frontier co-founder John Perry Barlow, comedienne/actress Janeane Garofalo and singing activists the Raging Grannies are amongst those in the film who continue to work on behalf of internet freedom. They join others across the nation who are motivated by the unwritten subtitle of Barbershop Punk: He who controls the information controls the people” (IndyBay)
