Do you have "Nothing to hide?" That makes you one of many. But control on your personal life is increasing, and privacy is under attack.
In the spring of 2011 Dutch filmmaker Peter Vlemmix read an article about bodyscanners. He decided to embark on a search for the state of privacy in The Netherlands. And discovered that society is starting to show signs of a panopticon. But how does this exactly work, why are the once liberal Netherlands especially privacytroubled, and when will we all start to feel the consequences?
This event is free of charge.
Please make an effort to be on time. We endeavour to start by 7:15pm to leave enough time for a debate at the end of the movie. There will probably be live music after the screening.
