Recently, as the number of independent movie theaters has been decreasing, various types of independent films have been missing opportunities to be screened. On the other hand, multiplex cinema where similar/ uniform films are always screened has raised its numbers. Facing to this fact, some people started to make alternative place to distribute and share independent films, and that has become a civil movement. Those new 'cinema' movements have potentials to create and develop new community and identity. This exhibition will offer the visitors new experience through the future forms of 'cinema'.

Currently UNITED PEOPLE distributes films especially documentaries whose themes relate to social problems such as environment and human rights issues. UNITED PEOPLE also focuses on the 'civil screening movement' where films are screened at public spaces such as restaurants, universities and companies. This format of screening is ideal for audiences to think about social themes and problems described in the films.
