As the world reels from Edward Snowden's revelations about NSA surveillance, this episode of HotSpots explores Julian Assange and WikiLeaks' engagement with these issues and asks strong questions about how democracy as we know it is faring in the information age.
HotSpots reviews 3 ‘must see’ documentaries that reveal how our lives and our society are already being affected by surveillance and secrecy.
The show includes expert commentary from Peter Galison and Robb Moss -Harvard Academics and directors of 'Secrecy,’ and expert film criticism by Simon Baker.
