The Cleaners

(Sundance Film Festival) An interesting look at what’s going on behind the scenes of the internet.  Using a third world country as it’s subject (there are many more “cleaners”) it dives into Silcon Valley’s outsourcing the job of determining inappropriate content on the internet.  Social Media has it’s pro’s and con’s but more importantly, this film opens begs you to look at what we have created, discuss how to “police it” and what to do to choose and protect those who are recruited to maintain standards for the world.  The director does an amazing job of balancing security and privacy of those involved with revealing a little know industry that’s in need of policy for the work being done and those doing the work.  The film offers no solutions or recommendations.  It’s a really well done documentary.  Definite intelligent date night movie, leave time to discuss!
