Hippies from Hell by Ine Poppe, The Netherlands , 53 minutes
Dutch spoken, English subtitled documentary, 53 minutes
Hippies from Hell are a group of hackers, techies, artists, writers and puzzlers. In the eighties they published hacker magazine Hacktic and in 1993 they started the first Dutch Internet-provider, xs4all, thus opening the Internet for the general public. Apart from this they throw wild parties and organize open-air hacker festivals, using the Internet as their social platform. On their mailing list they discuss almost every aspect of our technology infested society. In the film artists play with hardware, young hippies hack their school-calculators, lock pickers open locks without a key. Hacking is an attitude, an activity, a verb.
Ine Poppe works in Amsterdam as an artist, writer and director. As a journalist Poppe wrote extensively about digital culture, she also has researched and directed television documentaries and lectures on the arts and multimedia. Poppe also wrote scenarios for several computer games, in 2002 with Mirjam Vosmeer and Waag Society Teylers Adventure for Teylers Museum in Haarlem. More:

What’s to be done? - a documentary series
EIKON-Sued Productions 2002
At the 2001 G8 summit in Genova, discontent with globalisation-as- usual once again burst into the open as activists alerted the general public to a multiplicity of new types of political, economic, social and cultural conflict.
The documentary series “What’s to be done?” explores a new dynamic of democratic involvement and political intervention, searches for contemporary forms of solidarity and self-organization, and features innovative examples of linking the local and the global from across the world.
Every documentary returns to the question of perspective, strategy, and the organizational logic of the movement. Four thinkers – Michael Haardt, Toni Negri, Saskia Sassen and Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi- reflect on the question at the heart of the series: ”What is to be done?”
