Event description

Description

In celebration of Hour of Code (https://hourofcode.com/ca) and Computer Science Week, we are pleased to present the critically-acclaimed documentary film Black Code. It is a gripping account of how governments control and manipulate the internet in order to censor and monitor their citizens. With stories from exiled Tibetan monks circumventing China's surveillance apparatus, Syrian citizens tortured for Facebook posts, Brazilian activists using social media to distribute alternative news, and Pakistani online violence against women, we see firsthand the high-stakes consequences that our unprecedented level of digital communication can produce.

Movie screening is free and welcome to all. Use Eventbrite, or call Barbara Frum at 416-395-5441 to register.

This program is part of Toronto Public Library's Digital Privacy Initiative. Questions about this initiative can be directed to Jonathon Hodge, jhodge@torontopubliclibrary.ca or 416 393 6253.
