Chicago Filmmakers will be showing the Chicago premiere of Code 2600 - a part of The Power of the Pixel: Digital Revolution Series - directed by Jeremy Zerechak (LAND OF CONFUSION) at Hokin Hall at Columbia College Chicago

If you're interested in conspiracy theories and IT be sure to get yourself a seat. It talks about the way we (those of us who do) use information technology and it's impact on a global level. From those who have created it, to those who use it to fight against corporations and governments. It asks us if this modern and new connectivity effects our ability to remain human as the Information Technology Era globally infiltrates itself into our lives. The film is said to be a provocative wake-up call for today's generation.

If you're curious as to what the title Code 2600 refers to, it was the hertz at which phone phreaks (phreakers), those who explore telecommunication systems, were able to infiltrate (hack) the old telephone networks.

Suggested Admission: $8

Location: Columbia College Chicago - 623 S. Wabash

When: Friday, November 2nd 2012 - 7:30pm
