Director: Jeff Orlowski
Cast:

This topical documentary delves into the world of data mining and surveillance capitalism. The former employees of Tech Giants like Google, Facebook, and Twitter explain how the platforms have evolved from the noble origins into the ruthless user manipulation systems that they are today. Jeff Orlowski’s compelling film doesn’t provide any big shocks, but it does manage to illustrate how cleverly and intricately the social media sites are designed.
