Immerse yourself in the hidden digital cleaning industry, which rids the Internet of content deemed inappropriate. This serious-minded, accessible and compelling documentary is admirably measured but unafraid to show disturbing content, or ask some searching questions. Who controls what we see and what we think? What is acceptable and who decides? Discover the controversies at the intersection between human rights and new technologies.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with:
- Mr. Jacques de Werra, Professor, Geneva University
- Ms. Dorothée Baumann-Pauly Research Director and Expert Business and Human Rights, New York University and HEC Lausanne
- Mr. Ilcheong Yi, Senior Research Coordinator, UNRISD
Moderator: Ms. Catherine Frammery, Journalist and Digital Expert, Le Temps
In collaboration with the United Nations Research Institute for Social Development (UNRISD) and with the support of the Permament Mission of Korea and the Office of High-Commissioner for Human Rights.
