Title: Documentary on Bitcoin - Summary Thread
Post by: hlynur on August 06, 2013, 01:09:17 PM
Hello there,
the aim of this thread is to be a source for every movie/shortfilm/documentary on BTCitcoin that is either already finished or still in production / funding stage.
(movies with similar topics are cordially welcomed as long as they don't wander to hard on the conspiracy side)
Because of my educational background working in the film sector for some time and my private passion for healthy brainfood I felt like supporting it a bit in this forum.

It's important to support creative people who try to spread info via any form of media and moving pictures are the greatest opportunity for this.
So if your eyes get a glance screw up your courage and donate to the project.

I also want to mention german company http://www.macromedia-fachhochschule.de/uploads/pics/2013-04-16_Bitfilm_Festival_Bild_2.jpg (http://www.bitfilm.com/) (thanks to Akka for bringing it up) which produced many trailers for involved companies and launched the world's first Bitcoin-powered shortfilm festival(http://www.bitfilm.com/bitfilm-festival.html).



Feel free to add any other stuff that fits in here and I will put it on the list.
Please take all listed media with natural caution and common sense. If a vid shows severe flaws and/or is showing false informations or a link is down, don't hesitate to pm me because i don't have the time to monitor all listed content.

ah very cool thanks for posting that
your welcome. while digging through the threads on all the boards here it's too difficult to keep track of a lot of interesting stuff.
i thought a little more centralisation of info would do no harm and could be really helpful.

this one is a good start:

"Let's make money"  (AT 2008) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1307963/)
stream: http://archive.org/details/LetsMakeMoney

A bit old but it's still a very interesting documentary on this subject.
It shows some ugly aspects of the global financial system and the consequences for third world countries.
Released in 2008 it historically hit the bull's eye at that point in time.


Title: Re: Documentaries on Bitcoin - Summary Thread
Post by: hlynur on August 11, 2013, 06:47:22 AM
so this one is running a bit off-topic,
it's more a mixture of video art, music and interviews about consumption, media and current form of politics & economy.
i know this style won't appeal to everybody, but from the perspective of seeing a movie as an artform this concept is geniously realized by Erik Gandini and evolves a lot of power.
At least give it a try please, you won't regret it!

i don't plan on spamming this thread to hard...
whatever...here are some more documentaries on financial systems and money.
i haven't seen all of them yet, so I hope the presented information is mostly accurate. (feedback will be added after watching)
There are a lot of movies in this genre diving deep into the conspiracy pool and tend to drift off after a while.
(hopefully these three don't belong to that category)

Silver & Gold - Hidden Secrets of Money:

Epsiode 1: "Currency vs Money" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyV0OfU3-FU)
Episode 2: "Seven Stages of Empire" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdSq5H7awi8)
(part of episode 2: "140 years of monetary history in 10 minutes" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wD3KYlpE2lk#t=222)

These two episodes are very good for a basic understanding of currencies and their historical development.
My biggest point of criticism is the lack of information on the manipulation of gold and silver markets today.
But that's probably because the background concept of Moderator Maloney and his vids is meant to advertise investments in this sector.

"Workingman's Death" (AUT / GER 2005) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0478331/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1)

This documentary is a disturbing but also fascinating portrait of physical work in the 21st century.
Director Michael Glawogger has the unique style of just presenting scenes and interviews without any further comment.
It's up to the viewer to form his opinion and expand his view of the world.

The only annotation to this movie is a famous citate from William Faulkner:
„You can't eat eight hours a day nor drink for eight hours a day nor make love for eight hours --all you can do for eight hours is work. Which is the reason why man makes himself and everybody else so miserable and unhappy."

movie is split into several episodes (couldn't find the complete version on the web in english):
playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Ch8zL2_oWk&list=PL073F9F1BF743735E

Epsiode 1: "Lions"
                Activity around the Port Harcourt meat market in Nigeria.

Epsiode 2: "Brothers"
                Pakistani men dismantling oil tankers with their bare hands.

Epsiode 3: "Heroes"
                Freelance Miners in the Ukraine.

Epsiode 4: "Ghosts"
                Men mining sulphur on a volcano in the east of Java, Indonesia.


unfortunately last two episodes are missing (please pm or comment if somebody knows where to get them):

Episode 5: "Future"
                Chinese steelworkers in Anshan, a city in the province Liaoning, China.

Episode 6: "Epilogue"
                Scenes from an ancient smeltery from the Industrial Age in Duisburg-Meiderich, Germany which was converted into an amusement park.

I highly recommend documentaries by this guy and if you liked the first four episodes perhaps think about buying this one for the collection if you're a docu gatherer (like me  :))

Thank you for this thread, just discovered, gonna spend a few time watching the ones I haven't seen yet. :)
I'd like to contribute with, not a documentary, an episode of The Good Wife, Season 3, Episode 13, Bitcoin for Dummies, it's the only episode I've watched from that show.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2148561/
hey somebody got lost in my thread, sometimes feels like a monologue in here
feel free to share suggestions on the subject. My aim is to provide a well-graded list of objective and high quality documentaries.
or spoken with the words of Kant: "Enlightenment is man's emergence from his self-imposed nonage."   ;)

i read about this one recently on german newssite followed by an interesting interview on german newsmagazine "Der Spiegel".
though i have my personal problems with the common style of american documentaries
(imo too much use of music & cut-methods to drive emotions and often commenting one-sided towards movies'argumentation instead of letting the audience figure out their own conclusion...by contrast to the socratian method of self-awareness without nearly no manipulation of human senses)
this movie could be interesting for US citizens:

http://ia.media-imdb.com/images/M/MV5BMTY5NjUwNjU1OF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTI2NjEwMDE@._V1_SX214_.jpg
"Inequality for All" (USA 2013) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2215151/)
Documentary by former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich as he looks to raise awareness of the country's widening economic gap. Got much positive feedback at Sundance Festival (yea...doesn't say too much, but it's still a bit like Cannes for foreign viewers like me.)
I haven't seen this movie, so I can't give any critique how well it is made (not available in cinemas in germany), topic sounds interesting not completely sure about Reich's past reputation as I have heard of him for the first time but it's on my watchlist for the future

good suggestion.
after doing the talks category yesterday I already thought about splitting the shorts up in explanatory vids (perhaps up to 5min and with sub for animated ones) and more in-depth short documentaries.
I will change it this weekend.

edit: I hope the new categories fit better...also added some new talks

here's another classic:

"Darwin's Nightmare" aka "Darwins Alptraum" (AUT 2004) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0424024/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1)

An eye-opening documentary on the effect of fishing the Nile perch in Tanzania's Lake Victoria.
The predatory fish has wiped out the native species, is transported to European markets as delicatesse while starving Tanzanian families have to make do with the leftovers.
At the same time the area is a important linchpin for importing weapons in that part of africa.

thanks to Zangelbert for this interesting video:
Balaji Srinivasan at Startup School 2013 sharing an interesting theory about the coming future.
His talk isn't mainly about bitcoin but about how future technology can change society and its country as a whole.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOubCHLXT6A

So what do you guys think: is the idea of a "peaceful revolution and shift of power back to the people through use of sound money" viable? What needs to be done to make it possible?

Absolutely. The Internet has been a peaceful revolution on centralized media so far, despite Hollywood and old media throwing a fit and trying some legal shenanigans. These decentralized, anti-fragile systems simply hollow the establishment structures out little by little, without much fanfare.

Bitcoin will incite a much bigger reaction because banks are bigger than media, but there's not a lot that can really be done. No wars will work; centralized power just cannot beat decentralized power. It's too late now anyway, the big-time nerds are jumping aboard the ship:

thanks for the vid, i'll update the main list.
As mentioned in first post of this thread his name is James D'Angelo and he's one of the cofounders of world bitcoin network channel on youtube.
He is also a cofounder of bitcoin community in Boston, co-organizer of bitcoin meetups in cambridge and a member of positive money on meetup (http://www.meetup.com/members/78541892/)
credentials...well on google i found description "ex NASA engineer / professor" in cached description for the 101 Blackboard series, though no sign of that on youtube (must haven been changed).
I couldn't find any further info via linkedin or other platforms, not checked facebook though (don't have account there). (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/james-d-angelo/80/377/152), but only this local news article:
http://www.wickedlocal.com/brookline/news/x1803284725/Brookline-man-wants-to-turn-local-businesses-on-to-Bitcoin.

Would be nice to have some more info on educational background despite the informative content of his vids.
Perhaps somebody met him in person during a meetup and can help out here?

thanks, hard to keep up to date whith so much happening in this fast-changing economy.
Btc world still feels like a parallel universe to me when looking at everyday life and realizing all the potential market niches.
Because btc is not like any high-tech company's product its "advertising channels" are small and rely on an active "movement" of creative people spreading the word via online media channels and superior apps in the future.
As soon as big players see the growing consuming power & possible profits we will reach the next stage accompanied by huge mass media coverage.
(though i have the theory companies will rather launch their own currencies in exchange for bitcoin instead of integrating it directly)

For now, atleast drugs suppliers, arms and ammunitions suppliers are making full fledged use of it. It is yet to reach 3rd world countries.

It can unite people throughout nations without any interruption of capitalist companies in between if it blows up. ONE PLANET ONE NATION as they say.

well bitcoin is a tool and humankind will play around and figure out several ways for integration.
locigally it docked on black markets in the beginning because of its level of anonymity and easy transferability.
i wouldn't underestimate the tools of governments and its authorities though.
we are facing a change on the global web where countries can and will at some point start reestablishing virtual borders in the name of "protection" against attacks from the outside.
The benefits for microtransactions could play a big role for adaption in the 3rd world, but there's a long way to go.

The established financial structures will put a lot of effort in controlling a part of the bitcoin network to sustain its power when they realize its disruptive effect.
"one planet one nation" is a nice thought, but imo it's an utopia that will never exist in a perfect form and humanity is still some centuries away from even touching its surface.

This is more a shift of a huge amount of wealth towards a specific group of people which comes with a lot of power and responsibility.
If this will be used to change the world for the better depends on how big individuals in this group are disrupted by the existing system...
I'm optimistic by nature so i know it will turn out good over time, but it will take a long and winding road to get there. (as always during human history)

Once the money gets out from the hands of those 1% to the 99% the world will be a much much better place to live in. Right now, rich are getting richer and poor, poorer.

running into open doors here, the more even wealth distribution to the lower half of the pyramid the better,
but believe me the rich guys have a lot of dirty fiat and filthy propaganda channels in their hands to corrupt this progress and throw stones in its way. (they're well practiced at doing this for centuries)
It's like the rise of internet again, a lot of people got rich, stepped up in the pyramid and sold their principles during this process
while a small group of honourable people weren't blinded by wealth and continued fighting for the great idea behind it and spreading the word.
Now look at the high level of virtual observation and suppression we're facing today, feels like Middle Ages to me in some countries.
let's see how this story turns out.
interesting times we live in....

Article mentions he also directed "Downloaded (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2033981/)", a documentary on Napster. (haven't seen it so I can't give a statement to how biased his work is.)

Quote
Who are you planning to interview for the film?

- The truth is we already started—we’ve already been interviewing. I can’t give you a list of who we’re talking to, but I will tell you that it won’t be shocking names.
I’m going directly to the highest level people in Bitcoin, Tor, the black market trading sites.
I’m also going to the political side and to the hackers, the pundits, and the people who have a lot to say about how we should go forward.
I will say that I’m not interested in making a Silk Road movie.
I’ll leave that to a trillion Hollywood people. I’m interested in it as part of a bigger story about the Deep Web and global culture.

This gives me hope that besides Hollywood telling their distorted and overacted screenplay in the planned silkroad movie,
other people take a more serious approach on the subject and try to show the real story behind it.

Just wanna ask, does the documentary also talks about the whole logic on Bitcoin? We would like people to watch the film, esp not Bitcoiners. And except from what is the history of Bitcoin, we need them to learn the full logic and sense of what Bitcoin is, how it works etc. So that it can suits Bitcoiner and other people who doesn't really know Bitcoin.

not sure to what documentary you refer to in particular, most of them are still in production.
"The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin" (see first post) is the only feature-length movie released so far. (i haven't seen it, so i can't say if it suits for your purposes)
I hope during this summer "Life on Bitcoin" will be released, which seems in my eyes to become the most suitable for everyday people.
the difficult thing is that everytime a documentary premiers it will already be outdated to a certain part
as bitcoin economy is evolving in such a fast pace it's hard to catch up.

if you dig through the list on first page you will find a lot of useful stuff for education esp. in the explanatory vids section.
imo "How Bitcoin Works Under the Hood" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lx9zgZCMqXE) is still the most in-depth explanation i've seen so far.
the listed series by khan academy and bloomberg and The Bitcoin 101 Blackboard Series  (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLzctEq7iZD-7-DgJM604zsndMapn9ff6q) on wbn's channel also do a good job in that regard.

Does answer some of that need.  The logic on bitcoin, the reasons for its inception, its function and necessity in the world.

Its been in production for many months, the Kickstarter just launched though.

description sounds very good, esp. that they want to look above the money aspect and document the technology itself and its versatility

Quote
Our film is not targeted at the people who are already in the bitcoin ecosystem.
Our film is intended for the mainstream audience and is scripted in an easy-to-understand language to illustrate how revolutionary this technology can be.
So, finally; This is the film that you will watch with your parents.

Quote
But of course, the story of Bitcoin is not about its function as a 'currency' or as payment mechanism.
In fact, this is probably the most boring aspect. Money is merely the first app and bitcoin as a technology platform will truly change the world.
We will highlight some of the most interesting use cases by avoiding the complex technical aspects behind second layer applications.
Instead we will find analogies such as the Internet protocols to explain the potential.

Hi, Ben from the Bitcoin: The End Of Money As We Know It team.

That's right, when we began this project it was because we wanted to create a documentary that was more analytical, balanced and investigative without alienating viewers who may not have a wealth of knowledge in technology and economics.

The bigger picture of Bitcoin, especially in relation to the history of money, is the most exciting aspect for us. We find there is too much attention on the price and other peripheral discussion. We will have much to say on the full scope of Bitcoin and its impact on society.

Happy to take any questions, comments and suggestions you may have.

Ben

Hey ben, cool you're posting here,
the hardest thing with bitcoin documentaries is probably to keep it up to date until it's released.
recently i read an article that described my thoughts on the blockchain system in a similar way how i would tell friends about it.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/news/10881213/The-coming-digital-anarchy.html

it's still hard to imagine in how many ways this technology could be used in the future.
i'd love to see some approaches in your movie towards these ideas although some might still seem utopian atm.

kay, now projects keep rolling in.
another admission for feature-length category:

https://s3.amazonaws.com/ksr/projects/980641/photo-main.jpg?1401771329
"Coined - The Story of Cryptocurrency"

trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=48pjSgIZCaE
funding: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chrishiggins/coined-the-story-of-cryptocurrency?ref=recently_launched

So far the team concentrate heavily on Dogecoin and its community - not sure how big btc's part will get in the end. They also plan to cover a number of altcoins (eg. Darkcoin, Ripple, Vertcoin, and even RonPaulCoin).

Quote
We’re focused on the personal stories of the people directly involved in creating cryptocurrencies and building the communities that surround them.
The media usually focuses on fear-mongering (“Bitcoin was used to launder money!”) or hype (“this changes everything!”).
We’re cutting through the noise to tell more personal stories, which are just as fascinating.

Quote
We started production on our own dime in January 2014, and we project that we'll keep shooting through at least the end of 2014.
Post-production and a festival run will take us through at least the end of 2015.

You are right about the possible applications of the Bitcoin protocol and what new technologies could arise.

We will certainly take a look into this, but as you said, it's important not to become outdated by focusing too much on the here and now.

Cheers
Ben

I just stumbled upon this small project.

Australian filmmakers Dale Dickins and Chris Mylrae have started a fundraiser for a small explanatory mini-series called "The Bitcoin Doco".
Looks like a nice low-budget project focusing on mainstream adoption in Australia and it will be released under Creative Commons licence.

edit:
deleted "Coined - The Story of Cryptocurrency" (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/chrishiggins/coined-the-story-of-cryptocurrency?ref=recently_launched) and "I am Satoshi" (https://www.startjoin.com/IamSatoshiFilm) from main list as both projects haven't reached the funding goal.

This is a great list. Thanks for putting this together. It's kind of like Dree12's hacks and scams thread only happier. lol

If still in production, you might want to add the date production started to give perspective especially for those thinking about donating. For example: Bitcoin - The Documentary started in March 2013. They may actually be making a movie but I've seen skyscrapers completed faster than that if you know what I mean.

good advice...i've already planned to add dates to all the vids and rearrange them to being up-to-date. will do that during this week.
yea, i really wonder what happened to bitcoin - the documentary, more than 60btc donations and no feedback since january   :-\

reddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2dvzg3/the_coolest_bitcoin_movie_is_right_here_now/

Movie is already finished and premiered at the Cryptolina Bitcoin Expo (http://www.cryptolina.com).
The director explains his subsequent funding in the reddit thread.
Quote
Filmed over three days at the beginning of July in Argentina, “Bitcoin: Buenos Aires” provides a never before seen glimpse into the heart of one of the preeminent Bitcoin development centers in the world.
Set to the backdrop of Argentina’s looming sovereign default, award-winning filmmaker Valerian Bennett meets with some of the leading voices in the local community (Bitcoin Embassy, BitPay, BitPagos, Bitex.la)
and uncovers what makes Buenos Aires undeniably unique in the Bitcoin universe.

I'm not too much interested in that stuff but hope for a special edition including additional footage.
even if the movie will be completely outdated when released it's still the first documentation on btc's toddler stage and I'd love to add it to my collection.

depends what you're looking for.
see list on first page for all available content.
the first feature-length documentary "Rise and Rise of Bitcoin" will be released 10th October on vimeo and itunes. (preorder: http://bitcoindoc.com/store)
i'm sure a torrent will show up eventually but i will not be the one to seed it or post the links on this thread.

Sometimes you should choose wisely what you want to consume for free and what is actually worth supporting with your wallet.
If you have the coins for an android tablet, i'm sure watering little plants from time to time doesn't take too much effort.  ;)

A few more days until the Rise and Rise of Bitcoin finally drops for public consumption right?   This film had so much hype back when it was at Tribeca Film Festival or whatever...   I am still interested in seeing it though.   I will probably purchase a copy just to support (even though I can't imagine watching it more than once)..

yep, release will be 10th October.
I also plan to purchase a dvd for my collection even though the movie is outdated.

It's a pity that post production for feature-length movies simply takes too long to keep up with this fast-paced economy.

sorry to hear that, esp with such an amount of money.
so far i don't want to call it a scam, but it seems like after the last bubble the team simply didn't care about the project anymore.
what really aggravates me is spekulatius not responding in any way after such a long time.
One could at least expect a status report what happened with the whole thing.
I mean they got nearly 70 btc in donations during 2013!

edit:
send him a pm and bump his thread.
at some point he must take a stand. last measure would be negative trust rating but i wouldn't go that far atm.

Oh my god, I had no idea they collected that amount of money and ripped off Bitcoin100 too. That's about $25,000 at today's exchange rate and about $50,000 when they collected it. I'd say that deserves some negative trust or the immediate delivery of a damn good documentary!

Assuming coins where sold at daily lows same day they were withdrawn it sums up to roughly 16500$.
(estimated with bitstamp price history. donation wallet: https://blockchain.info/address/1MuNPrfNMho5UP9312m3idzauwaCi57fLe)

That said if they sold same day...

Quote from: bitcointhedocumentary.org
How much money do you need?

To make this movie as awesome as it can get, we need to collect about 10.000 EUR or 13.000 USD in BTC.

With this money we can traveler to conferences, developers, entrepreneurs and miners all over the world!

If we get less then that, the movie will still be cool, but not as many interesting people and places will be in it, so yeah, if this

documentation shall reflect the international concentrated power of the Bitcoin project, we need to raise those funds!

What happens with the money left over?

If there will be any funds left over after the project is finished, the final movie produced, all DVDs and Thank-You gifts made and shipped,
all festivals applied to and all television networks  mailed, all open positions cleared and accounted for,
then eventually left over funds will be distributed among the makers of this movie and/or towards the next project,
possibly a mixture between those two. A corresponding agreement will be published in time.

Can I use your movie for my own project?

Yes! You will be fully able to utilize every bit and piece of what we release for your personal, corporate or otherwise oriented projects!
Everything will be released under a free-to-use license to enable maximum freedom. You can publish, edit, sell, delete or do whatever you want with everything you find among our footage!
Please see the license agreements for further information, once we have decided which one suits this project best.


Anyone received Thank-You cards so far?   :-\

I pmed Spekulatius to post an honest update on project status.
If he doesn't answer or post next time he logs in  - negative trust rating should be considered.
He could at least publish the footage as promised so other people can try their best to make a short doc out of it.

here's german page of his media school for the project:
http://projekte.mediacampus-ilmenau.de/projects/view/172

Maybe I give his instructor a call and ask wtf is going on if Spekulatius shows no reaction.
He seemed like a nice guy when I contacted him last year and offered my help so I want to give him at least a chance to explain.

I saw "The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin (https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/the-rise-and-rise-of-bitcoin/id907604787)" at the Hollywood premiere last weekend.
It is VERY worth seeing.
https://twitter.com/haq4good/status/518864241227345920

Get it on iTunes (yeah, I know, Apple) as soon as you can.  That will bump the listing there and if it does, then Apple will add promotional budget to boost it further.
It is well made, well researched, and very informative.

I watched the movie on You Tube. Good effort. I could understand/relate to almost everything in this movie as I had already done research on this topic. As the name suggests " the Rise & Rise of Bitcoin"  the movie is very optimistic and I'm of the similar opinion. I feel we haven't seen the upside yet and the world is yet to experience the power of a cyrptocurrency BTC

I wonder if any new documentaries will come out about BTC that document the downturn in prices that we have seen over the last year?   Most of the pieces that I have seen only show the meteoric rise that we say over a year ago.   I am bullish long term, but I do like to see both sides...

I'm sure all projects which started during 2014 will cover that downturn to some extent, if they want to be taken seriously. Nothing's worse than one-sided advertising flicks...but people should have realized by now that btc's financial value is highly speculative.
the whole process of film-making is simply way too slow to still be up to date on release when covering such a fast evolving technology.
After post-production the marketing part to get bigger publicity (advertising, festivals, publishers, DVDs etc.) can easily take 6-12 months for a feature-length movie until the premiere.

Thanks hlynur, I have been waiting for the documentary you mentioned above- "Bitcoin: The End of Money As We Know It"

Yeah. I don't like the title. Seems a bit alarmist really. I thought the Morgan Spurlock one was pretty good for a mainstream piece, but The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin is still my favorite. There's a list of some others here: http://www.coindesk.com/six-bitcoin-documentaries-watch/

"Princes of the Yen: Central Banks and the Transformation of the Economy"
 (UK 2014; length:93min)

stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p5Ac7ap_MAY
site: http://princesoftheyen.com/
imdb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4172710/

Quote
“Princes of the Yen” reveals how Japanese society was transformed to suit the agenda and desire of powerful interest groups, and how citizens were kept entirely in the dark about this.
Based on a book by Professor Richard Werner, a visiting researcher at the Bank of Japan during the 90s crash, during which the stock market dropped by 80% and house prices by up to 84%.
The film uncovers the real cause of this extraordinary period in recent Japanese history.

some interesting interviews with Richard Werner (Mar 2011):

Hello there,
the aim of this thread is to be a source for every movie/shortfilm/documentary on BTC that is either already finished or still in production / funding stage.
(movies with similar topics are cordially welcomed as long as they don't wander to hard on the conspiracy side)
Because of my educational background working in the film sector for some time and my private passion for healthy brainfood I felt like supporting it a bit in this forum.

It's important to support creative people who try to spread info via any form of media and moving pictures are the greatest opportunity for this.
So if your eyes get a glance screw up your courage and donate to the project.

Just released- Bitcoin:  The future of digital currency financial systems.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tw3PhMFm8tQ&feature=youtube_gdata_player
(Length 87min)

Not bad it is worth waching, very long introductions at the start, a lot of big US government names. They also go into the history of gold/USD prices among other interesting facts thats that some people may not know.

Strange that in the description on youtube it says published 2/4/15 but a lot of the prices they quote are wrong for today, like LTC @$11 per coin, i haven't seen it that high in a long time, must have been filmed some time ago, can anybody update as to when this was filmed?

(vid was uploaded on the official youtube channel)
Bitcoin: The Future of Currency? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wJHk7QzSqn4) - Discussion @ Atlantic Council (Apr 2014; length: 87min)

sidenote: The Atlantic Council is a US think tank and lobby organisation controlled by former high-ranking politicians, ex-military brass and global enterprises.
It's aimed at establishing contacts to governments in the transatlantic area and influence economy, politics and security to its interest.
Going through the row of involved people, governments and companies, this organisations looks like one of the top influential networks in the western world.

good point, when i have some free time i'll start making a newbie-friendly list and start a new thread (perhaps on the beginner board).

Thanks for sharing. Do you know when "Life of Bitcoin" will be released. It should have released in November 2014 :/

unfortunately no, according to beccy and austin's twitter (https://twitter.com/lifeonbitcoin) they posted a facebook update in march.
(no fb account here, so i didn't care about it as it's the poorest way to release updates imo)
since they mentioned to work with a publisher it got really silent around their project.
compared to similar projects it's really a joke how long they are taking to release, esp. regarding the 70,000$ funding via kickstarter 2013.
In August 2014, they said it's nearly finished and they are applying for several festivals and thinking about distribution models. (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bitcoinlife/life-on-bitcoin-a-documentary-film/posts/961563)
From my experience this can take up to one year, but in fast evolving bitcoin space they'd be better off keeping marketing phase as short as possible because the shown content will already be obsolete on release. (as seen before with 'rise and rise of bitcoin')

it's a shame that the movie will probably just turn into another melancholic flick for bitcoiners about the early stages instead of reaching mainstream audience.
i saw so much potential there but i doubt they will show footage about the recent progress.


thanks to knight22 for the update and Troublesome96 for the cudos :)

Thanks for sharing. Do you know when "Life of Bitcoin" will be released. It should have released in November 2014 :/

unfortunately no, according to beccy and austin's twitter (https://twitter.com/lifeonbitcoin) they posted a facebook update in march.
(no fb account here, so i didn't care about it as it's the poorest way to release updates imo)

I can't really imagine that there will be much interest from the mainstream on this. It's not sexy enough for them like something like DeepWeb will be (even though that's not exactly going to get a cinema release either and premieres on TV sometime this month I believe). As a bitcoin fan I don't think I'll be that excited for Life on Bitcoin either but I will watch it when its freely available. I think it'll just be a film about them wandering round looking dejected everytime they get rejected then a bit of excitement when they find some coffeeshop or a local to accept bitcoin in exchange for something.

The IamSatosi documentary will be released in the next few weeks. The funding did fail, but it will be out soon!

Unfortunately funding for his documentary "IamSatoshi" (https://www.startjoin.com/IamSatoshiFilm) hasn't reached its goal.

Change the status of "Bitcoin : The end of money as we know it "
It's released and available here & on vimeo : https://www.theprotocol.tv/bitcoin-the-end-of-money-as-we-know-it/ however it's not free . It seems like we should pay 6$ BTC to see it

The OP is lacking a couple of updates. I saw the IamSatoshi documentary 2 weeks ago, yet this is still noted:
"Satoshi Pollen is a channel by pollen_bit with a lot of interesting interviews, panels and conferences.
Unfortunately funding for his documentary "IamSatoshi" hasn't reached its goal."

Just pay this few bucks in order to support the movie team. Unfortunately, there will be a free (illegal) streaming version sooner or later.

It was released today.

Hello.

Regarding the new Bitcoin documentary 'The End of Money (as we know it)' which had been released a few days ago. Some of our mining facilities are shown,
so go and get it here (reduced by 20% with the special GM code 'Genesis20'):
https://vimeo.com/ondemand/bitcoin

Perhaps this saving might help with helping you in making your minds up to watch it or not.

I've watched the new Bitcoin documentary and I think it's well done.Maybe a bit too long in explaining the history and background of our actual financial system but in a whole it's worth to watch it.John Barrett as narrator is doing a great job here.His voice fits perfect.

I know one should not compare all the different movies about Bitcoin which had been made until today, but favourite one still is "the rise and rise of Bitcoin".
