Good documentaries about surveillance capitalism?

I don’t want any “Russia stole the elections” BS

Btw is there any recent documentaries about mass surveillance? Citizenfour is a bit old now

Nothing to Hide (2017)

Can also have a look at the one on Jamal Khashoggi

Shoshanna something has a book on surveillance capitalism, but after seeing a few interviews with her, she’s enough of a liberal that she still might think “russia stole the elections”. That said its probably worth reading, as it does focus mainly on US tech companies.

Yep.

The Great Hack, Laura Poitras did another one about Assange that also discusses his rape allegations.

For anyone wondering, this is “Shoshana Zuboff on surveillance capitalism | VPRO Documentary”

Looks interesting given how long her book is, thanks!

The Social Dilemma. It’s not focused on state-sponsored surveillance. Rather, on how a business model (surveillance capitalism) pushes for effective surveillance and, even worse, behavior changes towards the goals of the highest-bidding advertisers.

not exactly what you’re looking for, but you could check out iHuman (2019). it’s not about surveillance per se, however it does discuss surveillance as a topic crucial for development of AI
