Most interesting of all may be the statement of the filmmaker, about the power of using BitTorrent and The Pirate Bay to reach a wider audience -- and how all the works of filmmakers in the past who never got the attention they deserved can now have a new life:
"Sometimes I think about all the filmmakers and musicians who passed away. Those who never got to be a part of the world wide web. No matter how hard they worked or no matter how much money they put into distribution, they couldnt reach more than a small part ofthe world.Nice to see more filmmakers embracing what's possible, rather than hating what's possible.
Now their work have the opportunity to get new life. The possibility to be rediscovered by a new generation. A new world. To reject that,to prevent that from happening, is a sin. I think Charlie Chaplin would have one thing to say to all those people who do: Idiots.
Die Beauty is my first feature and releasing the film here is an obvious thing to do. And the fact that The Pirate Bay decided to give the film a world wide premiere on the frontpage makes me speechless. It's a privilege to be able to introduce the film to the greatest audience in the world."
