Tracking our electric meters can be dangerous. This film tells us how.
Are corporations paving a perilous path directly into our homes? Transparency advocate Josh del Sol reveals a global corporate program of in-home surveillance, extortion and harm in the name of ‘ being green’.
The 2013 NSA spying scandal exposed vast programs to monitor your personal communications. Now, energy utilities and governments are reaching into your own home, through fast-tracked “smart” meters and data-harvesting technology. But, what if you have a choice? At stake is in-home surveillance, increased bills, emerging health risks and more hacking vulnerabilities. With compelling insight from whistleblowers, researchers, government agents, lawyers, doctors and environmentalists, Josh del Sol’s award-winning documentary Take Back Your Power brings us on a journey — investigating the erosion of rights in the name of “smart” and “green,” while navigating toward inspiring solutions. What you’ll discover will surprise, unsettle and ultimately empower you.
