When you post something on the web, can you be sure it stays there? Enter a hidden shadow industry of digital cleaning, where the Internet rids itself. Who is controlling what we see… and what we think?
We live under the influence of social media dominating the daily life of human beings these days. How are the channels of new communication managed, full of information, assertions, etc.? ''The Cleaners ''looks into the process of managing, selecting, and distributing contents on the global media platforms. Co-directed by Hans Block and Moritz Riesewieck, it begins at a corner of the internet company in the Philippines, where the content moderators search for videos on the web all day. The deletion and entry of videos depend on them. ''The Cleaners ''raises controversial issues on the point. Verification by filtering Terrorism, sex, political criticism is it a necessary evil in the age of user-centered content? The moderators revering value neutrality and objectivity are Duterte’s supporters or faithful Christians in the offline world. [JANG Byungwon]
