Equity Unbound is pleased to invite you to another Studio Visit, this time with guest sava shaheli singh who is both co-writer & co-producer of “Screening Surveillance“. Screening Surveillance is a short film series that uses near future fiction storytelling based on research to highlight potential social and privacy issues that arise as a result of big data surveillance. Each film raises issues in our understandings of trust and surveilled relations.
