The Illegal Film

Since the invention of photography, billions of photographs have been taken. Today, more photographs are taken in a single day than were taken in the entire twentieth century.

Directed by Martin Baer and Claus Wischmann, this documentary explores the whirlwind evolution of image production and addresses the issues of copyright and privacy, as the new technologies become more and more invasive. A striking documentary on a reality of the current times.

The Illegal Film, Germany, 2018, 84 min., Martin Baar and Claus Wischmann
