"White Mountain" D, ED: Emma Charles, CI: Emile Kelly, GB 2016

Running time: 20'

The film is set in the Pionen data centre, a former Cold War era civil defence bunker buried 30 metres underground in Stockholm, currently housing servers for clients that once included Wikileaks and The PirateBay. Part Bond villain lair, part retro-futuristic spaceship, the 16mm film plays on this science fiction aesthetic. As the camera idles on the florescent-lit server stacks, issues of privacy, surveillance, and digital sovereignty inevitably emanate.
