STFFF The Cleaners4th August, 2018
The extraordinary, at times graphic story of the workers who wade through social media and digital sewage, deciding what to censor.
In the shadowy industry of digital cleaning we meet the Filipino censors paid to rid Facebook of what it doesn’t like – violence, pornography and, we discover, some political content. Who is making the rules? Are we comfortable with allowing a private company to control what we see? Playing like a thriller, The Cleaners explores these questions and more.
