Just stumbled upon it. Watch now... before it is taken down.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-weYwiDOSeg

Hi folks, I'm Ben, production assistant on the doco.

It looks like there's a bit of debate going on about the price of the film and the style of the film. I'll try my best to answer your questions.

When we started this project 2 years ago we ran the initial funding through Kickstarter. We raised 20K and grew our support from the strength of the campaign's success. The rest of the funding came from the Director, Torsten Hoffmann, personally investing a far more than the crowdfunding provided. We understand that for some people, myself included (being a student), $6 can be costly. If this is the case, perhaps after 'acquiring' the film and watching it, based on your enjoyment, you could give us a BTC donation.

We tried to make this as affordable as possible. At the same time we do wish to make a return on the investment. 2 years spent producing a bitcoin doco is certainly enjoyable work, but it's also nice to get paid for it!

Now on the style and quality of the film. From the outset we knew we wanted to make a film for the uninitiated, the newbies, those without a firm grasp on money as it is often misunderstood (money is the root of all evil, money corrupts etc etc). We DID NOT want to make a bitcoin doco for the bitcoiners. If you have been following bitcoin for some time and are familiar with it there's likely nothing in this film about bitcoin that you'll learn. However, there are definitely lessons on money, banks, the Fed and other institutions and technologies that may surprise you. The film attempts to show why bitcoin matters in a historical, economic and political context. We could have approached it from a different angle, showing the potential of blockchain based tech and how it can transform the way we exchange, contract, vote etc. But this would tell the uninitiated little about why bitcoin matters to so many people (the unbanked/underbanked) and what the government (and banks) have done to our money. We think this perspective on bitcoin is due some attention.

Hopefully you all enjoy the film and can participate in wider bitcoin discussion with friends, family and colleagues. Please share the film!

Cheers

Ben

Yes, it is new.
The production quality is quite standard TV-level documentary IMO. Like something you would see on History Channel?
I personally thought the narration style was a bit too close to those of Conspiracy Theory documentaries, but it was not bad.
The content is good. Lots of history. No hiperbole about Bitcoin - quite level-headed.
Some funny / light-hearted moments towards the end.
A couple of the choices of interviewees are debatable.

Worth a watch, no doubt.

Sidenote: I would love to see it subtitled / dubbed in many languages.

It'll be taken down because it was just released (in July) and was available for viewing at the Producer's website for $5.99 (accepting bitcoin only of course). The YouTube version is pirated!

Official Link to the movie: https://video.popchest.com/videos/embedded/176

Link to the producer's website: http://theendofmoneyasweknowit.com/

Leave reviews here at IMDb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4654844/

If you plan to watch the YouTube link version, the pirated version, be a good sport and float these guys a decent tip equal to the value you gained from the education and entertainment. And then tell a friend about it and give them the Official Link above so they can pay the full, yet very fair price.

If you believe that the fiat currency system and banks have an unfair advantage, don't steal from the people who are trying to bring awareness to that unfair advantage.

Thank you for the legit links to the movie.  I will have to check it out, and the price is not too bad.  I hope that they take bitcoins?  It would be strange if they did not!

The production cost was +/- $80 000 and it was crowdfunded by the Bitcoin community. Let's not pirate stuff from our own community guys and gals.

I feel they concentrated a bit too much on the history of money and not enough on the difference Bitcoin can bring to solve some interresting problems currently in the financial world.

This documentary is screaming for a follow up.... Part 2 : Cash is trash, Bitcoin is King ......to be continued.  Cool

so they released it for free, i remember it was available for $5 or 6, i think it's better for them if they can partner with youtube and gain on the viewers instead of charging money for it

cool movie nonetheless
