Willingly or not, we are about to enter an era of near-total transparency. In the very near future, the devices that surround us will constantly monitor our activity. The result will be a nearly-comprehensive store of data about human behaviour, and it may well yield significant benefits but it may render obsolete the century-old tradition of documentary filmmaking. How will the role of the documentary filmmaker change in a world in which every piece of information is recorded, indexed and stored? In this short presentation, Tercek will share examples from the all over the world. In a world saturated with information overload, the documentarian must move beyond mere chronicling of events and the accumulation of detail to something more: creating a platform for social change.
