FACE_IT! DAS GESICHT IM ZEITALTER DES DIGITALISMUS
Germany 2019. D: Gerd Conradt. Documentary film. 80 mins. DCP. OV with German subtitles.
In the age of increasing surveillance and the associated further development of technology, the coded face becomes a modern fingerprint. The “Facial Action Coding System”, developed by the American psychologist Paul Ekman in 1978, for example, is supposed to make it possible – integrated into the most modern technology – to decipher the personality of a person. The film explains these and other current developments based on a pilot project at the Südkreuz station in Berlin. Data protectors, artists, an art historian and the Minister of State for Digitisation, Dorothee Bär, have their say.
