The feature documentary Trust Machine: The Story of Blockchain by director Alex Winter will be unveiled soon in New York and Los Angeles screenings.

Winter has had a long career in show business, acting in the Warner Bros. hit The Lost Boys and the wildly popular Bill & Ted franchise. Winter has also directed three narrative features: cult classic Freaked for 20th Century Fox; Fever, for Lionsgate, which screened at Cannes; and Smosh: The Movie.

His latest film explores the world of blockchain and cryptocurrency. “The idea of a verifiable ledger is a problem that’s been in search of a solution for a really long time,” Winter said. “I got into this working on Downloaded. When I was making my film Deep Web, funnily enough, I still had very little interest in bitcoin. Then the world got really confusing with blockchain technology, cryptocurrency, and decentralization.”

He added: “Bitcoin matters, but blockchain is really where the changes are going to come. There are huge changes happening in human culture right now. Never has something like this happened before, ever. And it is fascinating to me. That’s why I really wanted to make this documentary.”

Produced by Kim Jackson of SingularDTV, Geoff Clark of Futurism Studios and Alex Winter’s Trouper Productions, the film is financed by SingularDTV, with Zach LeBeau, Arie Levy-Cohen, Alex Klokus and Joseph Lubin as executive producers.
