Event Description

FILM & DISCUSSION:

"Terms and Conditions May Apply"

Have you ever read the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policies connected to every website you visit, phone call you make, or app you use? Of course you haven't. But those agreements allow corporations to do things with your personal information you could never even imagine. This film explores the intent hidden within these ridiculous agreements, and reveals what corporations and governments are legally taking from you and the outrageous consequences that result from clicking "I accept."

 

Slamdance Film Festival Programmer Notes:

A Facebook post sends a SWAT team to a New York comedian's apartment; the AOL search results of television writer fit the profile of a serial killer. Privacy is at the heart of Cullen Hoback's riveting documentary: how we give it away, and how it is taken from us. The "terms and conditions" of software contracts map a journey through the brave new world we have unwittingly opted in to. Wiretapping, surveillance, prosecution of thought crimes, and the data mining of our computer, GPS, and telephone records are shown to have become legally enshrined. Hoback's deft editing takes us through an impressive collection of conversations, including Moby, Margaret Atwood, Ray Kurzweil, Mark Zuckerberg, and Anonymous hacktivist Barret Brown. Indicting governments and corporate interests for the commodification of our private lives, Terms And Conditions May Apply urges us to push back.

Endangered Sea Turtles on Course to Lay 60 Million Eggs This Year | The Mind Unleashed

In India, along the coast of the eastern state Odisha, over 475,000 endangered Olive Ridley sea turtles have come ashore to a roughly 3.75-mile (6-km.) Rushikulya beach to dig their nests and lay eggs. However, restrictions in place due to the CoViD-19 threat has allowed for hundreds of thousands of endangered turtles to be protected from any human presence—especially the presence of tourists—resulting in what may be their most successful mass nesting in years.

Dozens of elephants used for carrying tourists ‘set free’ as parks closed due to pandemic | The Independent

As the coronavirus outbreak continues to sweep across the globe, the slowdown in life has brought some form of relief for dozens of elephants in northern Thailand. At the Maesa Elephant Camp in Chiang Mai, tourism has been decimated by the outbreak of Covid-19, which has forced such businesses to close their doors to all visitors. With no end to the pandemic in sight, owners have now decided to remove the huge wooden and metal seats that are strapped to the jumbos’ backs throughout the day.

Cruise Ships Dumped Over 3 Million Pounds of Trash in Alaska Last Year | Return to Now

Records show cruise ships left behind more than 3 million pounds of trash in Alaska’s capital city in 2019. Local government officials have reached out to both the Juneau landfill and the cruise ship industry to stop the dumping, but they aren’t having much luck. Because both industries are private, and because there aren’t any laws on the books for cruise lines, there’s not much the city can do about it.

Tesla's Solar Panels Are Turning Saltwater into Drinking Water for 35,000 Kenyansn | Return to Now

The world’s first solar-powered desalination plant is up and running! This is great news considering half the world’s population will be without adequate drinking water by 2025.
