The film tells the story of the people employed to delete “inappropriate” content off the internet. Observing and rating thousands of often deeply disturbing images and videos every day has severe psychological impacts for these “cleaners”. In a parallel struggle, we see how lives around the globe are affected by online censorship. In the end, this film asks us to reflect on Article 19 of the UDHR: freedom of expression. This film will be shown in partnership with OHCHR (United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights) at Cinéma Galeries in Brussels and followed by a conversation with guest speakers, Cornelia Kutterer, EU Government Affairs & Digital Policy Director at Microsoft; Maryant Fernández Pérez, senior policy advisory at European Digital Rights; moderated by Carlos Jimenez, UNRIC.
