Artisan is set to release

The World Wide Web has permeated our society and become an inescapable paradigm in just a few years. But few people really know the world that unfolds behind the browsers. Directors Chris Hegedus and Jehane Noujaim take a startling peek into the world of the dot-com industry with the documentary Artisan Home Entertainment brings the film to a much wider audience than it received in limited theatrical release with a new DVD this fall.

Two special featurettes will be included; Startup Again (Where Are They Now) and Documentarians on Documentary,.
