Main Seminar 2015

DOCPOINT MAIN SEMINAR: The Paradox of Freedom – Individual freedom and information security

Does an individual’s privacy disappear into the vastness that is internet? Is a state allowed to keep secrets? How do the transforming ways of gaining and distributing knowledge affect freedom of speech? What about individual rights? The DocPoint main seminar 2015 deals with information security and digital freedom of speech as well as their boundaries.

The event starts with Laura Poitras’ documentary CITIZENFOUR, a real-life thriller that reveals how Edward Snowden shares his evidence of illegal covert surveillance programs with the director, and the whole world. The acclaimed documentary filmmaker Poitras is known for her political themes. CITIZENFOUR has astonished audiences all over the world.
