Alex Winter’s The YouTube Effect documentary gets a trailer

Alex Winter, star of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Freaked and more has been directing some excellent documentaries in recent years – Downloaded, Deep Web, The Panama Papers, Showbiz Kids, and Zappa. His latest is The YouTube Effect which looks at the changes the video-sharing site has brought to the world.

The story of YouTube is both inspirational and cautionary; the video-sharing website appeared in 2005 and quickly grew to become one of the most ubiquitous and powerful media platforms in the world. It is impossible to overstate its impact on global culture by providing easy and immediate access to news, entertainment and other vital forms of information. It has, however, helped radicalize some of its viewers with right-wing propaganda and other dangerous media. The story of YouTube is the great dilemma of our times; the technology revolution has made our lives easier and more enriched, while also presenting dangers and challenges that make the world a more perilous place. And at this extraordinary moment in history, it is the story of how we got here and where we’re going.

This looks absolutely fascinating and it is incredible to see the impact things like YouTube have had on us all.

The documentary will premiere at the 2022 Tribeca Film Festival in June.
