film: King GAFA and the Magical 0-1 Crop

a contemporary fairytale about privacy

Gafa 05

"King GAFA and the Magical 0-1 Crop" The internet translated into a fairytale – we find ourselves in the role of peasants, sowing and harvesting massive amounts of data for a mighty king. Students of the University of applied Arts present their animated contemporary fairytale about online privacy – a story to challenge our internet behaviour and spark a conversation about data sovereignty.

In a kingdom not so far away ...

there is King GAFA, powerful and wealthy. Google - Apple - Facebook - Amazon. Providing central intersection points of data flow worldwide, online companies have quickly risen to incredible power. Their devices and services offer fun and convenience - but they have entangled us in a system that generates value from our data, without our effectively informed consent. We have become peasants, sowing and harvesting massive amounts of data for the greedy King. What happens in his castle? And what truth lies in the rumours about the terrible creatures hiding in the King’s dungeon?

"King GAFA and the Magical 0-1 Crop" is a contemporary fairytale about online privacy – a story to challenge our internet behaviour and spark a conversation about data sovereignty. It's a series of animations, equipping the viewer with the digital tools and knowledge they will need to become privacy knights, informed citizens fighting for their own rights.
