It's only fitting that "TPB AFK: The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard," a documentary about Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm (who's currently in prison in Sweden), the founders of the notorious file sharing site and copyright lawsuit magnet The Pirate Bay, would end up online for free just as the film had its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival today. It's all part of the plan for the film, which opened the festival doc section while simultaneously being posted onto YouTube as well as, of course the site on which it's centered.
Directed by Simon Klose, "TPB AFK" was funded by a combination of Swedish government art grants and a $25,000 Kickstarter campaign. The film's also available for digital purchase and DVD pre-order here, and Klose, who released the film under a Creative Commons license, also plans to upload a remix-friendly version that doesn't include the four minutes of archive material in the theatrical cut.
