Black Code

With Human Rights Watch

Auditorium Ivan Pictet
Maison de la paix, Geneva

Nicholas de Pencier’s film reveals the global impact that the internet has had on free speech, privacy and activism, whether exiled Tibetan monks attempting to circumvent China’s surveillance apparatus, Syrians tortured for Facebook posts, Brazilian activists who use social media to livestream police abuses, and Pakistani opponents of online violence campaigns against women.

Black Code (2016, 90 minutes, English) will be followed by a panel discussion.

Entry is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Organised with Human Rights Watch.
