Duration
88’
Director
Monika Hielscher and Matthias Heeder

To predict a future crime scene and prevent a murder seems like something from a sci-fi movie. It is, but it’s also real – and happening right now. To make this possible, powerful computers and omnipresent cameras capture data from all sources, which is then evaluated and analysed with the help of algorithms. At the same time we, the citizens, are transformed into carriers of recorded data – our every move, message and purchase tracked and mapped. Ratings of how likely we are to commit a crime are attached to our personae. Computers spit out lists of tomorrow´s criminals. But what if it´s you who ends up on this list? What if the data is wrong? Or biased? How can we be guilty of things we haven’t done? Pre-Crime travels to Chicago, London, Paris, Berlin, Munich and other places to show predictive policing techniques in action.
