People You May Know
Directed by Katharina Viken
People You May Know follows Charles Kriel, specialist advisor to UK Parliament on disinformation, when he discovers Cambridge Analytica collaborating with a software company creating a microtargeting platform for US churches, targeting vulnerable people - the poor, the grieving, the addicted - to radicalize them for far-right politics. With US 2020 elections coming, Kriel gathers a team of whistleblowers and journalists, and journeys across America with his young family, where he discovers a powerful organization with ties to the heart of the White House. The man who commissioned CA is a member of the most powerful secret political organisation in the United States, with an agenda to rewrite the Constitution according to Christian law. Going undercover, he risks everything to gain access where no outsider has ever set foot.

piqued my curiosity, but didn't tell a coherent enough narrative. i came away wondering, still, what entirely is in it for the people funding the evangelicals and drumming up gop support -- the people behind it with the money aren't doing it for religion, so why *are* they doing it? question remained not well answered. too bad. interesting topic.
Totally scarey and totally believable. Some of the smartest folks I know are devout Christians, should they watch this documentary I think it could break their faith.
Outstanding. Want to know how predictive analytics are exploited for a multitude of uses? Watch this! Helped answer a looming question: why are so many seemingly well-meaning people flocking to Trump? How could this happen? Data, $$ and hate.
An absolute eye opener
Informative, would recommend everyone watch this!
