A new film documentary, Decent – How Blockchain Can Change The World, is now in production. Produced by the Refugium Foundation, the film will feature real-life uses cases of distributed ledger technology which offer solutions to societal issues. The film is targeted for a spring 2019 release date.

Filmmakers Marek Osiecimski, Sebastian Strzelecki and Anna Konieczna plan to put a spotlight on a selection of human stories highlighting blockchain companies working on projects that may help humanity. The issues range from a lack of Internet connectivity to aiding refugees.

The documentary plans to showcase why the developers, designers and pioneers started creating blockchain technology in the first place and hope to move the conversation away from how crypto has become synonymous with easy money.

Decent will be one of the first documentaries to explore how blockchain companies can have a massive social impact and benefit real people everyday. Companies now scheduled to appear in the film are RightMesh  Golem, Streamr, DAOstack and Colendi.

“We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to spread the word about our mission to lift nearly 100 million people out of poverty by bridging the digital divide,” said RightMesh CEO and co-founder John Lyotier. “We are harnessing the combined power of a mobile mesh network and the blockchain to create the world’s first software-based, ad hoc mobile mesh networking platform and protocol to connect smartphones without a central Internet. The team at “Decent” is showcasing how decentralized technologies like these can have the potential to change the world.”

“While working as a foreign correspondent for TVN24, I saw the plight of other humans in war-torn and afflicted regions,” said Decent Director, Marek Osiecimski. “We want to explore these stories and tell them to the world while presenting how various blockchain projects are meeting those needs. In the film, we will get past the ICO hype and talk to the most important thinkers and developers in the space. This will bring blockchain’s full potential to life.”
