Surveillance Culture (2017) Dirs. Btihaj Ajana & Anders Albrechslund

Contemporary life is interwoven with surveillance. Gadgets and applications are increasingly being developed and used for tracking, quantifying, and documenting everyday life activities. State surveillance is now merely one example of the multifaceted forms of contemporary surveillance practices. Our current culture of surveillance is rather diverse and concerns relations between the public authorities and citizens, corporations and consumers as well as surveillance between friends, partners and within families. Focusing on the example of Denmark, this documentary explores the different manifestations and locales of surveillance, weaving together experts’ accounts and public opinions to reveal what is at stake in contemporary digital surveillance culture.
