Edward Snowden is still in exile in Moscow. In a video interview, he explains among other things what unjustified surveillance has done to the world in his opinion – a practice which he pointed out back in 2013. He also demonstrates why this is not the way to make the world safer. Afterwards, Snowden’s lawyer in Europe, Wolfgang Kaleck, will take part in a panel discussion with Ben Wizner of the American Civil Liberties Union and Sarah Harrison, who brought Snowden to safety. What are the chances of a European country granting Snowden asylum? Short video clips deliver responses from Munich passers-by on questions such as: Do you accept that more surveillance is necessary for more security? Do you feel monitored? Are you doing anything to prevent this? And the economic journalist from San Francisco, Christoph Drösser, explains how algorithms can and can’t locate terrorists. A choir from the ensemble of Kammerspiele warns against the dark side of power.
