Piracy has long been a crime that's left its mark on the entertainment industry from the early days of bootleg albums and copied VHS to the latest, wider threats of illegal downloads.
This new short film entitled 'The Last Cinema' was written and directed by recent National Film and Television School graduates Jae-ha Myung and his producer, Andrew Start. It's poetic, well shot and thoughtful. Hopefully lots of people will see it, think and act.
Directly commissioned by the Film Distributors’ Association (FDA) to help fight piracy, the film imagines a devastated near-future world in which unchecked piracy has brought about the end of cinema. Having gravel voiced British film legend John Hurt (whose tone fitted '1984' so well) is another bonus. Check it out in full below:
