All Light, EverywhereTheo Anthony

Surveillance cameras, electronic supervision and automated checks... More and more, various forms of "surveillance" are becoming commonplace in our daily lives. But all of these techniques are based on the assumption of an "objective look," despite the biases inherent in both human perception and that of a camera lens. A provocative reflection on the close links between cameras, weapons, police and justice.

In 2017, Theo Anthony was also featured at Docville with his special documentary Rat Film in which he looked at the underbelly of the city of Baltimore through the eyes of the rat population. Instead of the dark alleys and underground corridors he now focuses his gaze on another phenomenon that - like rats - is barely visible and yet ubiquitous in our lives: surveillance cameras. Slowly but surely, they have become all too common in our lives, just like other more advanced surveillance and surveillance technologies. But are cameras and optical observations really that objective? All Light, Everywhere explores the links between film, perspectives and police technology in a disconcerting way.


This film is part of...

Outside the dox

Outside the Dox is the colorful home of documentaries that dare to deviate from the classic approach. Films that experiment with form or content and thus broaden and enrich the genre. This year, among others, we present a cinematographic gem that knows how to convey a penetrating message without words; a film that is built up like a symphony and a film that is completely made up of found-footage material. Intriguing, uplifting, disturbing and fascinating.
