The digital revolution of the last decade has created a New World where anyone can make and distribute their art - bypassing the traditional gatekeepers at the movie studios, record companies, publishing houses and galleries. But does this new access to a democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature - or are the best new talents drowning in an ever-expanding ocean of digital noise? Is the New World offering a new and better democratic culture - where excellence can rise to the top? Or is there just too much mediocrity? These are the questions addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film with insights from some of the New Digital World's most influential creators and theorists.
