Nothing To Hide (2017)

0.0 ·

NOTHING TO HIDE questions the growing, puzzling and passive public acceptance of massive corporate and governmental incursions into individual and group privacy and rights. People generally agree that mass surveillance regimes are inherently invasive and authoritarian. Yet at the same time, the number of online apps and "free" services people install is constantly increasing. Forced to accept their terms and conditions, they click away their privacy and grant access to their own personal data. To justify their compliance, most of the people usually repeat: "Anyway, I don't interest anyone", "Why would they look at me?" and finally "I have NOTHING TO HIDE". The implications and consequences of the Nothing to Hide logic in the era of Big Data have never been questioned. Ignoring this question prevents us from answering another: What kind of society are we building for ourselves and future generations?

"Saying that you don't care about privacy 
because you have nothing to hide,
is like saying that you don't care about freedom of speech 
because you have nothing to say".

Films For Action is a digital library for people who want to change the world.


Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
