Version 4.0 🤡

lecture: "Information. What are they looking at?"

A documentary on privacy.

Event large

"Information. What are they looking at?" is a documentary film. It aims at inclusively sharing knowledge on privacy violations caused by measures of mass surveillance. The film will be easily accessible to as many people as possible. On the one hand, we will shoot and edit the film in a specific audio-visual language. On the other hand, we will realise the accessibility through the development of a supporting Open Source video playback application. Filmmakers can use this app to bridge barriers of exclusion that exist due to disability or missing language skills.

We aim at reaching an audience outside of digital enthusiasm, the mainstream media or highly privileged classes. Moreover, we focus on people who are excluded from the discourse due to language barriers and restricted access.

Our film will be available to a broad audience. What does this mean? First of all, it needs to be translated into at least 15 of the most-spoken languages in the world. Each language shall be translated into subtitles, closed captions, audio-description, sign-language, easy-to-read language, voice-over, and transcripts into braille. Thereby we offer a broad audience the opportunity to learn precisely what is at stake since mass surveillance became the norm.
