'Wikipedia is where there is all of the information' - defining histories in Peru


Representation of place, defining one's own histories, a tipping point in which we will see a convergence of humanity, and the end of informational and cultural isolation are all themes covered in the short clip posted above.

Wikipedia is interestingly presented as both an impetus behind this convergence and a site on which the convergence is actualised. There will be more to say once the full film is released (the video comes from a new film called 'Web'), but until then I'd definitely recommend watching the clip to see some of the powerful narratives about the internet, representation and place that are being created.
