POWERPOINT PRESENTATION

After the government loses his personal data – his name, address, and bank account details – David decides to find out just how much privacy we have left. David disappears – and private investigators Cerberus are hired to hunt him; they are given only his name. Using only the information he’s left behind, Cerberus have 30 days to catch David.

ERASING DAVID is a film which asks the fundamental question: does the man with nothing to hide really have nothing to fear?

At its most basic, ERASING DAVID is a film about privacy. It’s also a film about identity, security, liberty and rights – and what we mean by each of those terms. Whether you agree with David’s arguments or not, in a world which is ever more monitored, it’s surely worthwhile investigating these questions further.
