The People’s Cloud

An AudioGAMMA production

Year: 2016

THE PEOPLE’S CLOUD is a documentary film that gets to the bottom of the internet; investigating the ecology and impact of cloud computing on the lives of those who use it, the places it is physically located in and the people who work to maintain it.

Traveling across Europe the film searches for the sites and sounds that make up infrastructure of the internet. From secretive data centre factories and network exchange hubs to submarine cables and fibre optic landing sites, THE PEOPLE’S CLOUD investigates the environmental and geopolitical impact of mobile data storage, asking engineers, technicians, manufacturers, marketing experts, salespeople, economists, husbands, wives, family members and artists what ‘the cloud’ means to them and what this data boom has meant to their lives.
