On 8th February 2013, a new documentary was released directed by Simon Klose.  The documentary “TPB AFK – The Pirate Bay Away From Keyboard” is based on the lives of the three founders of The Pirate Bay – Peter Sunde, Fredrik Neij and Gottfrid Svartholm.

Of course, The Pirate Bay is one of the best known file-sharing brands and the site has a well-earned place in Internet history.  Swedish filmmaker Simon Klose has documented part of their struggle as they are targeted by several court cases over the years.

What not many people know is that the three founders of The Pirate Bay often pretended to get along in public, but had some big fallouts in private. This becomes quite apparent in the documentary.

TPB-AFK is the first film to premiere both online and at a major film festival, and can be downloaded and shared for free.  The full film is released under a Creative Commons license onto The Pirate Bay and other BitTorrent sites.  3 versions of this documentary are legally available for download from the Pirate Bay website.

The film runs for 122 mins.
