The Cleaners

The Cleaners

When you post something on the web, can you be sure it stays there? Enter a hidden shadow industry of digital cleaning, where the Internet rids itself of what it doesn‘t like. Reminding us of the shared social vision of a global village and its degeneration into a web of fake news and radicalization, the film charts the rise and fall of social media’s utopian ideology.
