Digitalization has changed society. While data is becoming the "new oil", data protection is becoming the new "pollution control". This creative documentary opens an astonishing inside view into the lawmaking milieu on EU level. A compelling story of how a group of politicians try to protect todays society against the impact of Big Data and mass surveillance.
Towards the end of the movie, Joe McNamee, the executive director of EDRi, is filmed while cycling through Brussels. At that moment, he was on his way to the United States Embassy. See more »
How does the EU make laws for Europe?
An excellent documentation on how new European laws emerge, how people in Brussels struggle for compromises, and how lobbying efforts from all sides try to push things into their direction. In the middle of it, the movie's "Jan Philipp Albrecht", a young MEP from the green party that tries to achieve the best possible outcome to protect privacy of European citizens in the years and decades to come.
The new General Data Protection Regulation is only just the example for the law making process, but not center-stage. Could be on any other law where citizens rights and interests of big companies clash.
