DOCUMENTARY BY DAVID BERNET
„DEMOCRACY“ opens the doors to a sheer impenetrable world and accompanies the political fight for a new data protection law in the EU.
A captivating and highly charged story about a group of politicians, trying to protect society from the dangers of Big Data and mass surveillance in a digital world. The Member of Parliament Jan Philipp Albrecht and Commissioner Viviane Reding attempt the impossible and decide to confront a tough political power structure, where intrigue, success and failure are so close together. David Bernet spent two and a half years accompanying the legislation process and condensed it into an astonishing documentary that depicts the state of today’s democracy with suspense and sensuality.
