Kerim says in his post:
We are releasing the film as a free BitTorrent download for all those tech-savvy people (the less tech-savvy can get a DVD for a $50 donation to our next project). I hope that this short piece will help raise awareness about DNTs and maybe even encourage some grad students who are still thinking about what they might like to research for their dissertation. If you think you might like to do such research, please contact me and I can help arrange some introductions.
I was hoping to see the documentary before writing a post about it, but I haven't had the time to download the necessary software. I hope to see it soon. In the meantime, I am linking it here to let you know about it.
We all need to be aware of how some of our own brothers and sisters have been branded, en masse, as criminals. I am sure this documentary will be an eye-opener for me, and probably for you as well.
