Trailer

No one really reads the terms and conditions connected to every website they visit, phone call they make or app they download. After watching this provocative exploration of what actually lies between the lines of those tiny-font agreements, however, you may just hurl your computer out the window and take to a cave. With fascinating examples, comical gags and terrifying facts, filmmaker Cullen Hoback investigates what governments and corporations are doing with your “personal” information. Regardless of privacy settings, data is being collected and behaviour is being monitored—as you read this, in fact—leaving the future of civil liberties uncertain. But are we really living in such a dystopian conspiratorial world? From whistle blowers and investigative journalists to zombie fan clubs and Egyptian dissidents, this disquieting exposé demonstrates how every one of us has incrementally opted into a real-time surveillance state, click by click. (Myrocia Watamaniuk)

    I was lucky to get a ticket. A lady purchased 3 tickets, but her 2 friends did not show up, so I purchased one of them from her for $7 (she gave me a discount) and the other one was sold to the lady behind me. I think it is a good idea to purchase in advance next time. Great film!

      I waited 25 minutes in line for rush tickets but had no luck. Lesson learned: but tickets in advance. :(

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
