Surveillance Vs. Privacy in the 21st-Century Data StateStreaming Video - 2012
Filmmaker David Bond lives in the U.K.-surprisingly, one of the top surveillance states in the entire world. From ubiquitous street corner traffic cameras to countless business, medical, and government databases, there is a disconcertingly huge amount of personal information that has been collected on him and his family. In this film, David documents a harrowing experiment in which he tests just how much privacy he really has by attempting to drop out of sight for 30 days after inviting a pair of security experts to try to track him down. His unsuccessful flight, in combination with his investigation into data collection and data loss/misuse, paints a dystopian portrait of life in a surveillance state where even if people have nothing to hide, it doesn't mean they have nothing to fear.
