Hacking for the Commons
This 87 minute long documentary takes us to meet those who, from India to the United States via Europe, are experimenting with the emancipation tools of “free software” to bring concrete solutions to various sectors. The collective practice known as “open” or “non-proprietary” is spreading in agriculture with “free” seeds, in healthcare with Open Source medicines, and in education thanks to a free access to knowledge.
Those who resist the “free” software field see it as a philosophical and political issue, as much as a societal choice, while the contributory and emancipatory practices of “free” software are beginning to spread far beyond the IT field alone, for the benefit of the Commons.
