Reel to Reel: Downloaded

In 1998 Shawn Fanning, a teenage hacker and computer programmer, created the code that would become the basis for all peer-to-peer file sharing. Shortly after, Fanning and his business partner, fellow teenager Sean Parker, launched the file-sharing service Napster. What had begun as a largely unknown underground network soon erupted into a full-blown global revolution. Downloaded explores this revolution from its genesis to its peak. It's about the music and the bands, the fans and the moguls and the young tech mavericks that ignited the biggest youth revolt since Alan Freed hit the radio. Please join us for a special screening of the film, followed by discussion and panel, moderated by President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman. Panelists include the film's director, Alex Winter, and musician/film participant Henry Rollins, and Jordan Berliant, Partner & International Music Manager at The Collective.
