Justice for All

Access to justice: for four billion out of the just over seven billion people on earth this is too expensive, too complicated, blocked by corruption, or simply not available. Lawyers working for the Dutch government devote themselves to the digital innovation of the legal industry. Surprisingly enough, Kenya is a trendsetter in this respect. Under the inspiring guidance of Supreme Court Judge Willy Mutunga, and with the aid of text messaging, smartphones and Twitter, a countrywide network of apps and legal volunteers is built. Injustice is combatted with cell phones instead of law degrees. Kenya is known as a country where corruption is rife; political violence and tribal warfare are the order of the day.

A.K.A. Tommy Chong

At the height of the Bush administration, Tommy Chong of Cheech and Chong was charged with selling bongs over the Internet and sentenced to nine months in federal prison. As part of the government's $12-million "Operation Pipe Dreams" drug paraphernalia sting operation, Chong, a vocal opponent of Bush's handling of the War on Terror, was singled out among 55 defendants to serve time. Filmmaker Josh Gilbert captures the post-prison, avuncular Chong as he turns his SWAT team arrest into hilarious stand-up material.
