Film of the month

Every Month, we will watch a movie selected in collaboration with Pop Up Cinema. The film of the month in May 2019 will be “Blackcode”. Please find a description below:

The Internet and social media have brought a degree of freedom to the oppressed of the world, a freedom that is infinitely precious. But that freedom also has a flip side: the web is a giant collection of personal information, offering fuel to oppressive regimes. From Tibet to Syria, this documentary shows the role of the web in the worldwide fight for democracy and freedom.
