'Surveillance' Fim and Discussion Series #1 - V for Vision
Disintermedia and OGNA present a series of three film screening and discussion nights on the topic of state surveillance, starting 7:30pm, this Friday, in the Otago Room at OUSA Club and Societies. Film #1 is 'V for Vendetta'.
Disintermedia.net.nz, in association with Organisation for Global Nonviolent Action, present 'Surveillance', a series of films and discussions about the intersections between state/corporate surveillance, civil liberties, human rights, privacy, anonymity, encryption, policing, democracy and more. The idea is to use three films - one each week - as starting points for three open discussions, the first on developing an inspiring vision, the second on analysing what we know about the problem, the third on what we can do about it.
This screening series is also a follow-up to the ‘Us Now‘ screening last year, and again we will be collecting contacts for anyone interested in getting involved in forming an Otago chapter of Students for Free Culture.
All three screenings will start at 7:30pm in the Otago Room, at the OUSA Clubs and Societies Building in Albany St:
Friday 9 August: 'V for Vendetta', followed by a discussion about vision for a society which respects the rights to privacy and anonymity
Friday 16 August: 'We Live in Public' (http://weliveinpublic.blog.indiepixfilms.com/), followed by a discussion about the problems of surveillance politics and technology
Friday 23 August: 'Free the Network' (http://archive.org/details/FreeTheNetwork/), followed by a discussion about tools and tactics for resisting the normalization of surveillance
