From technology to artificial intelligence and human rights, Total Trust highlights the abuses associated with a government’s use of technology to control its population. The film takes an in-depth look at the daily lives of human rights activists and how they are monitored, graded and oppressed by the government using advanced technologies. Using China as a mirror, Total Trust sounds the alarm about the increasing use of technology as a tool of surveillance. If this is where we are, what does our future hold?

This film received the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) Prize at the FIFDH 2024.
