Panopticon: The documentary about your privacy

Panopticon 2If you’ve followed the news on Edward Snowden and his NSA leaks, you know that the whole world has suddenly become aware that it is being watched and recorded. From presidents to prime ministers, terrorists to house wives, there isn’t a technologically active person who is free from the prying eyes of the intelligence services of the United States and other powers.

However, when you turn on your laptop or send a Whatsapp message to your friends, it’s not exactly obvious that you’re being watched. If you want to know what’s really going on, the full extent of privacy invasions in the Netherlands for the average person, join us tonight to watch the privacy documentary “Panopticon” with filmmaker Peter Vlemmix. It’s an eye-opener.

Dinner (pizza), drinks, and snacks will be provided, and you are of course welcome to bring your own. The documentary is about an hour long, after which we’ll break for dinner and then have a short discussion with Peter Vlemmix.

Note: the movie is in Dutch with English subtitles. The discussion will be in English.
