DOCUMENTARY The Chaos Computer Club is the largest group of hackers in Europe and stands for net neutrality and freedom of information. In the form of a documentary adventure game, the film plunges into a Utopia of the Internet, in stark contrast to the reality.Founded in 1981, the Chaos Computer Club (CCC) advocates its open source ideals of free exchange and participation against the increasing control and commercialisation of the Internet. According to the motto “All creatures welcome! Be excellent to each other!” hackers from all over the world meet every year at the CCC congress in Hamburg. How do they approach the challenges of our time? And what strategies do they have for a redemocratization of the World Wide Web?
