Laura Poitras, director of Citizenfour, raises her voice in the midst of lockdown to condemn the violence and human rights violations by the cyber-surveillance company NSo Group. Brian Eno's music immerses us in an atmosphere of terror and accompanies the investigation of Forensic Architecture, a research group that has been reporting the abuse of power by governments and private corporations in the digital world for years. The Israeli company NSO Group is responsible for designing the "malicious" Pegasus programme that spies on journalists, political dissidents and activists around the world.
