This documentary tackles the impact of the cyberculture during the last 25 years and its relation to the Artfutura Festival in Barcelona.
In 1990 to be informed we went to the library, to watch a movie to the theatre. Technology did not have the impact it has today, but even then, some voices predicted a promise, an idea that things would change thanks to the cyber revolution. During those years change was starting to happen, as in the 60s, the dream of a freer, more advance and democratic society driven by new technolgy tools, especially the internet.
“The Digital Promise” propose a journey to our digital history. Does it match with what their promoters expected of it? Was this digital promised fulfilled or has it been a disappointment? The film contrast the forecast with what it really happened.
