Feature documentary about mountaineering icon Reinhold Messner and how he became what he is. This film is as much about his personality as it is about his extraordinary exploits - the psycho-gram of a controversial mountaineer.
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.
Decisionmaking in the EU is a complicated process. The Commission prepares a proposal, the Parliament and and the Council have to agree to it. If they don't, they can make changes, until both can agree. This documentary shows how it worked for the data protection directive, focusing on the Parliament, it shows the difficulty of finding a compromise, lobbyists trying to get their interests to be included in the directive and the "hero" of the story, a member of parliament trying to coordinate all this and come up with a proposal that will get a majority.
Watching this will help you understand how the EU works, 89 minutes well spent.
