Us Now (film)

Screening of the film, Us Now, and Q&A with the film director, Ivo Gormley is on at the Barbican this month. Here's a synposis of the film and information booking:

In a world in which information is like air, what happens to power?

The world is on the cusp of the greatest social change since the invention of the printing press -everywhere, people are using the internet to share information, work and take action together.

For the first time in history, people have the tools to truly amplify group effort and can change politics, business and everyday lives.

Gormley’s inspired film follows the stories of the people who are redefining the meaning of ‘institution’ and asks politicians and thinkers including George Osbourne, Ed Milliband, Don Tapscott and Clay Shirky what all this means for our society now.
