Alex Winter, director. In 1998 Shawn Fanning, a teenage hacker and programmer, created the code that would become the basis for all peer-to-peer file sharing. Shortly after, Fanning and his business partner, fellow teenager Sean Parker, launched Napster. What had begun as a largely unknown underground network erupted into a global revolution. The film explores this revolution from its genesis to its peak (107 min.).
