Inspiration and origins
The inspiration for this documentary comes from the idea that Ethereum is an “infinite garden” and not a decentralized world computer. This is the view of Aya Miyaguchi, the executive director of the Ethereum Foundation, who envisions Ethereum as an everlasting growth machine.
The film is directed by Chris Temple & Zach Ingrasci, who have shot for Netflix, HBO, Hulu, National Geographic and The Atlantic, which have been shown at major film festivals around the world. Optimist, an independent studio based in Los Angeles, will direct the production of the film.
The team’s goal is to have a rough cut of the film ready by summer 2022, with the film premiering in winter 2023. However, the recent drop in ether prices may have impacted the documentary’s budget; According to Coingecko, ether fell 12.5% in the past 7 days to below $ 1,800.
