  1. Ok, so this site requires the commenters giving their information… quite ironic, right?
    haha, just kiding…

    I’m here to say that i’m from Brasil and just watched “Erasing David”… great documentary, mind-opener that can start great discussions about how controlled our personal informations are, AND how nowadays our society is more controlled by the big Companies, commerce etc… (I believe they have more information than the governement itself)

    I particularly loved the last scene, where the couple is making the baby’s birth certificate… it makes the whole documentary ends in a conclusion (in my point of view) that, if you really want your privacy, freedom, release from the system and establishment, you shouldn’t even start making your first document…
    I would like to know the director, David Bond’s opinion about that… I’m being too radical?

  2. Thanks Jan!

    Yes that’s the point of the ending, nice spot. As a parent you want your kid to be ‘in the system’ so they have all the benefits of e.g. healthcare etc, but at the same time, once you register them, they are logged and captured!

    I agree – corporations have more info than most governments… Is that true in Brazil, in your view?
