Who is actually managing the internet? What’s it like? A short film in search of answers in uncharted territory.

Simon Schares was born in 1994 in Wiesbaden. At the age of six, he received access to the internet for the first time as his parents equipped the family apartment with a DSL router. Gradually, he was introduced to the World Wide Web, though he still spent the majority of his childhood in the analogue world. In 2011, he resolved to undertake an exhaustive survey of the internet, a mission which he completed successfully in 2014. In 2018, he enrolled in the time-based media programme at Mainz University of Applied Sciences. THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE INTERNET is his graduation film. Since 2019, he has been studying Documentary Film Directing at Film Academy Baden-Württemberg and believes that he has developed a healthy distance from the internet in the interim.
