Storyline

What if the 2013 NSA spying scandal was just the tip of the iceberg? With compelling insight from insiders, researchers, government representatives, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, film-maker Josh del Sol takes us on a journey of revelation and discovery, questioning corporate and government actions toward in-home surveillance, extortion and eroding rights in the names of "smart" and "green." What you don't know *can* harm you. But what you'll discover will surprise, unsettle and empower you to challenge the status quo. Written by BigPitcher Films

A Documentary for our times on the use and abuse of POWER
2 January 2014 | by rlbolinSee all my reviews

This work began on a very personal level with the unexplained illness of a friend of the director. During its development, it built into a powerful indictment of WiFi and smart-meter technologies which now are not only beamed in unprecedented and ever greater volumes indiscriminately throughout our common environment, but now even force active radio transmitters onto and into our very homes and castles. The possible consequences for our health and security are laid our clearly, forcibly and with authority.

This film should be viewed by all who are concerned with our future well being and that of those who are coming after us. We are in uncharted territory like that of tobacco smoke, thalidomide, asbestos, lead in gasoline, etc. all of which proved to be disastrous for many but only showed up years later. We are no guinea pigs. Or are we?
