OCDF: DEMOCRACY + DIR. Q&A

Part of Open City Documentary Festival 2016
Dir: David Bernet
Germany / France / 2015 / 100mins

In Democracy filmmaker David Bernet seeks to demonstrate how the European Union creates new legislation. Filmed over two years, Bernet gained unprecedented access to those involved in the laborious process of drafting new privacy law. The result is a remarkably transparent film about a notoriously impenetrable system.

The law in question would protect European citizens from intrusions into their privacy by big business; something our unlikely hero, Jan Philipp Abrecht – a young idealist from Germany’s Green Party – is determined to enforce. To do so he must confront the leviathan of a huge political power structure, side-step lobbying corporations, and work through the tangle of Brussels’ bureaucracy.
