Another Perfect World

In Search Of Virtual Paradise

Another Perfect World is a documentary about digital utopias, the online worlds created for people to work, play, find friendship and love. The utopias of the future will be created online, in digital worlds capable of rendering photo-realistic depictions of whatever the mind can imagine with technologies that allow people from around the world to join in. We now have the chance to build a new world from scratch. If you were going to do so, on which principles would you establish it? What is more important: freedom of expression; an active marketplace to encourage social interaction; or laws to define the limits of social relations?
