In production, feature length
“Footprints,” a feature length documentary film in production, examines the revolutionary impact of Big Data on society. We hear promises of technological utopia, but we feel uneasy as we leave behind digital footprints that never wash away. We experience the magic of a frictionless world of convenience and efficiency, even as we fear being constantly surveilled, measured and analyzed by corporations and government. We are distracted and enchanted by new wonders even as wealth and power are centralized, privacy is eliminated, and life outcomes are determined by impenetrable and secret algorithms. “Footprints” follows activists, tech leaders, and cutting-edge thinkers as they all confront one of the most urgent issues of our time.
