We are in 2019 and privacy no longer exists. In less than one generation, the internet has become a mass surveillance machine. The business model that propulses this machine can be summed up by a simple saying: If it’s free, you’re the product. All the traces we leave of ourselves on the internet are captured, stored and accessible to both States and web giants ... and this trend is rapidly intensifying. If there is hope, hackers will be the ones to give it to us. The internet is their playground. Hackers know better than anyone the real extent of surveillance. They develop unusual projects, participate in international meetings and try to promote the cause of anonymity online. By giving a voice to our local hacker scene, HAK MTL explores Montreal’s contribution to the global fight for privacy.
