The movie ist part of a campaign (, which fights against the commodification of our personal data: so that no business may spy on our behaviour and manipulate us for commercial or political ends, especially by choosing what advertising and information we receive. It fights to prevent any decision about our lives (work, credit, study, etc.) from being taken automatically on the basis of these data. This tool aims to raise awareness, foster understanding and critical reflection of big data practices. Moreover, the video calls for changes, encourages the viewer to take action and provides links with further information.
