MAKER: A Documentary on the Maker Movement

Directed by Mu-Ming Tsai
65 min | 2014 | USA | Not Rated

**Post-film discussion with Slug Magazine and Craft Lake City’s Angela Brown and Salt Lake City Maker Faire’s Jenn Blum

The Maker Movement began in 2005 with the launch of MAKE magazine and the first “Maker Faire” in 2006. Maker is a feature-length documentary that looks into the current maker movement in America—a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together fueled by passion and powered by the advent of new technologies. Breaking the hobbyist movement stereotype, Maker delves deep into this ecosystem of design and manufacturing in the Internet era. The film explores the ideas, tools, and personalities that are driving the current crop of “Makers.”
