Interview with Alex Pop – June 6th 2014, at Dollar Cinema in Montreal, after the world premiere of “Softwaring Hard.
This is the Romanian version of the interview. English subtitles soon!
Interview taken by Vanda Ciuban Serban on behalf of K2TVRo.
This is just a heads up for the people who watched or contributed to the movie: you don’t need an IMDb account to rate films on IMDb, because you can choose to login with Facebook or Google. So you only need a Facebook or a Gmail account.
And more ratings won’t hurt (except if they are less than 5 :D).
Don’t hesitate, rate it. We’d appreciate that. 🙂
Here you can listen to the interview I had yesterday, June 2nd. 🙂
The official poster is here 🙂

În zilele noastre, software-ul este peste tot, indiferent de țară, oraș, vârste sau obiceiuri ale locuitorilor. Oriunde te uiți, probabil e software. În mod surprinzător, nu prea există documentare despre software. “Softwaring Hard” arată ce înțeleg utilizatorii despre creatorii de software și viceversa și acesta e dealtfel scopul său declarat.
Prezentarea este organizată de PORCOVETE PICTURES și Alex Pop, ca parte a promovării filmului la scară internațională. PORCOVETE PICTURES organizează această prezentare pentru a marca data de naștere a filmului.
