Eyes Without a Face: Surveillance in Cinema
8 Oct - 25 Oct
The act of surveillance has long been an instrument of monitoring and controlling citizens by omnipotent governments. With the advent of new technologies the ways and means to watch have become, so to speak, ‘democratised’. So what happens when surveillance falls into the hands of ordinary people? This group of films examines how the act of watching and listening warps the way we conduct ourselves behind closed doors.
