Truth and Power
What happens when private institutions and governments break the public trust? Pivot’s new investigative documentary series that The Huffington Post calls “unprecedented and pioneering" explores that question while separating fact from misinformation. Executive produced by award-winning filmmaker Brian Knappenberger (The Internet’s Own Boy: The Story of Aaron Swartz) and narrated by Academy Award(R) nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal, the ten-part series highlights the stories of ordinary people going to extraordinary lengths to expose large-scale injustice. Using probing interviews, original footage, and newly unearthed documents, the series unpacks the timely issues of security, surveillance, and profiteering in the digital age.
Inspired by the series, Pivot has teamed up with the ACLU of Southern California on “Know Your Rights,” an initiative that enables citizens to protect their civil liberties in the digital age. By helping citizens understand their rights, they’re empowered to defend and uphold the civil liberties granted to all citizens by the U.S. constitution.
