Description

"The Internet's Own Boy depicts the life of American computer programmer, writer, political organizer and Internet activist Aaron Swartz. It features interviews with his family and friends as well as the internet luminaries who worked with him. The film tells his story up to his eventual suicide after a legal battle, and explores the questions of access to information and civil liberties that drove his work." - Archive.org

Please join us during Open Access Week for an evening of information and discussion as we watch The Internet's Own Boy and afterward discuss the issues raised by the film, from copyright law to open government. Connect with other concerned citizens from the Nashville area and let's work toward an open government, open access and updated legislation.

Doors open at 6:00PM, the film will start at 6:30PM, it's 1hr 45m long and a group discussion will be held afterward. Refreshments will be available.
