'#chicagoGirl' in Maastricht

May 12, 2014

Tonight at 19.30 hrs at Lumière, Maastricht the documentary #chicagoGirl - The Social Network Takes on a Dictator. The film received the Students’ Choice Award at the Movies that Matter Festival 2014. From a Chicago suburb nineteen-year-old student Ala’a Basatneh coordinates a huge online network of revolutionaries in Syria, posting demonstrations on Facebook, mapping escape routes via Google Maps and putting footage of demonstrators online. Using the Internet she supports activists who wage war against the regime with their cameras and keep filming even when bombs explode all around them. The unfolding insurrection raises the question as to what the most effective means to drive away a dictator is: social media or an AK-47?
