The Real Social Network

United Kingdom 2011, 75 min, English, Hebrew subtitles

At the end of 2010, following the British government’s intention to raise tuition fees and make the country’s higher education the most expensive in the world, a broad student protest movement arose. A moment before the “Arab Spring” and protests for social justice around the globe, the British students already deployed methods that would characterize the new wave of protest: organizing in real time through social media, “occupying” the university; ultimately extending their scope to include wider social issues. The three directors used several cameras to observe the different centers of the protest and participants. Despite the protesters' discernible lack of experience, the new passion they found in their struggle suggests that their protest has just begun.

SRĐAN KEČA
Recently his work has explored the
connections between the built environment and the human condition - a kind of science of fragility, that has taken him to Asia. Another strand of what he does is based in the Balkans and tries to extract the universal from the convoluted historical narratives.
Completed MA at the National Film and Television School, prior to which he studied at the Ateliers Varan.
