From Chicago to London, Paris to Berlin, this chilling documentary digs deep into big-data-fueled security in the 21st century.

Philip K. Dick’s Minority Report is science fiction no longer. Today, predictive policing and computer algorithms have become an increasingly fundamental part of law enforcement strategies the world over. From Chicago to London, Paris to Berlin, this chilling documentary digs deep into big-data-fueled security in the 21st century to uncover who is – and isn’t – being protected.
