Resistance Cinema Presents: Trumping Democracy, April 2, 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall, 12 West 11 Street. This explosive documentary focuses on Cambridge Analytica and others identified as misusing personal data for political gain. In the days before the 2016 U.S. presidential election, using a little-known Facebook feature — “dark posts” — they deployed highly manipulative and personalized messages that could be seen only by the user before disappearing. In the darkness of the web, democracy was trumped by data. Special Guest Speaker TBA. Don’t miss this compelling film and bring a friend!
