Welcome to the website dedicated to the documentary “La bataille du libre“ !
La bataille du Libre is a documentary by Phillipe Borrel that deals with the issues related to free software; and is produced by temps noir.
Purpose of the site
The site aims to make the documentary known to as many people as possible in order to support and assist the film in its internationalization and ultimately the “liberation” of the rushs. Indeed, a crowdfunding accessible here is set up. This crowdfunding has several objectives, including the production of an international version of the documentary, financing English translation. The final objective of the crowdfunding would be to allow the production and editing of new rushs and their availability under free license.

Nowadays, IT is at the heart of almost all human activity. Has it helped to make us more autonomous or has it transformed us into the passive consumers of a market which has become global? We are not even aware that, at the heart of technology, two rationales are now clashing: since the 80’s, the emancipatory principles of free software movements began to attack the exclusive and “private” ones defending intellectual property rights. Free software, free seeds, free medicines, free knowledge… Focusing on freedom, cooperation and sharing, these movements aim to restore the user’s autonomy and power, leading to a world free of patents, for the benefit of the common good.
