NOTHING TO HIDE is an independent documentary dealing with surveillance and its acceptance by the general public through the “I have nothing to hide” argument. The documentary was produced and directed by a pair of Berlin-based journalists, Mihaela Gladovic and Marc Meillassoux. It was crowdfunded by over 400 backers.

NOTHING TO HIDE questions the growing, puzzling and passive public acceptance of massive corporate and governmental incursions into individual and group privacy and rights.

People generally agree that mass surveillance regimes are inherently invasive and authoritarian. Yet at the same time, the number of online apps and “free” services people install is constantly increasing. Forced to accept their terms and conditions, they click away their privacy and grant access to their own personal data. To justify their compliance, most of the people usually repeat: “Anyway, I don’t interest anyone”, “Why would they look at me?” and finally “I have NOTHING TO HIDE”.

The ‘Mister X Experiment’

Through the stories of five protagonists, the documentary questions the threats that mass surveillance can pose to our democracies and for people who might think they are not concerned. The main character of the movie is a young artist in Berlin, who tend to think that he has “nothing to hide”.

Mister X accepted to be tracked over 30 days on his cell phone and laptop. His data were then given to a data analyst and a tracker specialist. The experiment needed a month of preparation, a month of shooting and a month of analysis. The challenge was to see how much the two hackers could learn about Mister X through his digital activity (WhatsApp, Facebook, GPS location…) focusing only on his metadata (without looking into the contents of his communications).
