“Everybody loves a David and Goliath story, and this one is told almost entirely from David’s point of view.” – New York Times
“…something even non-techies can enjoy.” – TV Guide
For the past two decades, a loosely organized group of computer hackers, neo-communists and entrepreneurs has led the charge in a technological revolution that is undermining Microsoft’s monopoly and fundamentally changing the way software is developed and owned. Filmed in 35mm Cinemascope, REVOLUTION OS explores the Open Source movement’s origins through original interviews with its founders, and depicts the grassroots nature of the LINUX operating system and Open Source as they march into the mainstream.
Revolution O.S. is director J.T.S. Moore’s first feature length documentary. Moore previously has worked as a screenwriter for Walt Disney Studios. He earned his B.A. in history from Stanford University and his M.A. in film production from the University of Southern California’s School of Cinema/Television. Moore’s previous film, the Civil War action-drama SHOOTING CREEK, premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and later was licensed by Starz-Encore. Moore was born and raised in Atlanta and currently resides in Los Angeles.
