The Social Network told the fascinating story of how Facebook was created and the social turmoil/friendship destroying chaos it wrought. But Napster might be an even more compelling story, and now Alex Winter has made Downloaded, a documentary that will chart the ‘net revolution that followed. Check out the trailer above courtesy of Ain’t It Cool.

What looks to be a fascinating stare into the creation of the infamous music-sharing service, Downloaded tracks what happened to the industry and the people who built the company in the first place.

Interviewees include co-creators Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker, along with a slew of music industry types, who express the arguments for and against, and some musicians themselves, with commentary from the likes of Henry Rollins and even Noel Gallagher.

Winter has already shown solid chops behind the camera, and he’s chosen a compelling subject.

Details on when and where we’ll be able to see the film will be found on Winter’s own site.
