One of the currently much discussed issues is how much time we spend in the real world and how much time we spend in the virtual one – online.


One of the currently much discussed issues is how much time we spend in the real world and how much time we spend in the virtual one – online. “The network of networks” has trapped mankind to such an extent that we cannot even imagine what it would be like if it was not there. The internet has become an inspiration, a subject matter as well as a means of expression of cinema. The documentary films in our event are not an exception. You can watch them until February 19.
