He has nothing to hide but does he have nothing to fear? A documentary about privacy, surveillance and the database state.
Read our exclusive interview with director Melinda McDougall on the BEV blog.
David Bond lives in one of the most intrusive surveillance states in the world. He decides to find out how much private companies and the government know about him by putting himself under surveillance and attempting to disappear, a decision that changes his life forever. Leaving his pregnant wife and young child behind, he is tracked across the database state on a chilling journey that forces him to contemplate the meaning of privacy and the loss of it.
