Short (~20 minutes) documentary from ALA about government surveillance and privacy. ALA explains, "Privacy has long been a cornerstone of library services in America and a right that librarians defend every day. The theme for Choose Privacy Week 2012 is 'Freedom from Surveillance.' ... It’s our hope that well beyond Choose Privacy Week, libraries, schools, and community groups will watch the film and use it as a springboard for a discussion about privacy and surveillance in a digital age."
