Birgitta Jónsdóttir—parliamentarian, activist, poet, Buddhist, single mom—fights to make Iceland the free speech capital of the digital world.
THE MOUSE THAT ROARED, based in Iceland, investigates one of the most pressing challenges in the world today—how do we extend the hard-won rights of democratic societies into the digital space where most of our communication now takes place?
Through our character-driven documentary featuring Birgitta Jonsdóttír—poet, Buddhist, activist, single mom, and elected member of the Icelandic Parliament—we explore the question, “is the Internet to become what WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange calls 'most significant surveillance machine that we have ever seen,' or will it be a platform for innovation, creativity, community building and justice?"
Comment: You can help make that film a reality, and perhaps like that help preserve freedom, starting from the online world.
