Telestreet: Media Jacking
A short documentary exploring Italy's Telestreet phenomena, a network of close to 200 micro pirate TV transmitters that begun in the summer of 2002 to counter the media monopoly of Silvio Berlusconi. Perhaps the most interesting tactical media initiative of recent times, the TeleStreet network combines both old and new media, lo-tech and hi-tech. The documentary speaks with activists from TeleAut and SpegnilaTV and media theorist Franco Berardi (Bifo), who can be found at Rekombinant (italian + some english)
