Kim Dotcom: Caught in the Web

Mar 13, 2017

12:00pm – 1:48pm CT

The larger-than-life story of Kim Dotcom, the "most wanted man online," is extraordinary enough, but the battle between Dotcom and the US Government and entertainment industry, being fought in New Zealand, is one that goes to the heart of ownership, privacy and piracy in the digital age. Three years in the making, this independent film chronicles a spectacular moment in global online history, dubbed the 'largest copyright case’ ever and the truth about what happened.
