Screening and Pre Film Talk With Special Guest Speaker!
Join The Kamloops Film Society’s special guest speaker Brian Lamb as he draws connections between both the film and his impressive body of work and experience navigating and deciphering the importance and impacts of the internet, its applications and our public and clandestine interactions with it.
Brian Lamb is Director, Learning Technology and Innovation at TRU. For twenty years, he has lived and worked in the often-strange environments of online culture. Prior to the screening of The Cleaners, he will attempt to provoke discussion on the theme of “Information Pollution: Causes, Effects, Responses”. He mutters ill-tempered observations on his blog, https://abject.ca
The Cleaners is an efficiently drawn expose on the dark art and practice of digital sanitation.
At first pass, it sounds great: anointed individuals remove nasty content from the internet. But why is it being done so secretively? And what are the mind bending consequences of these actions for all involved?
