Synopsis


“All Creatures Welcome” explores the world of hackers and nerds at the events of the Chaos Computer Club, Europe’s largest hacker association. The film dispels common clichés and draws a utopian picture of a potential society in the digital age.

Tënk's opinion


The Hackers from the Chaos Computer Club act as modern day data Robin Hoods. In their international camps, the utopian idea of a free society becomes reality for a few days. The film follows the tribe of nerds, political activists and “other galactic life forms” in a playful attempt to delve into this anarchic diversity of life forms and open knowledge. We realize (with the help of short animated sequences), what it means to view society not as a given fact, but as a material that can be designed and “hacked”. Renouncing glorification but revealing a well-developed sense for inner contradictions, the film portrays a (sub)culture whose concerns have long become mainstream.
