After a busy day at Congress, why not unwind with some popcorn and a documentary film (or two)?

Data Mining the Deceased explores the big business of genealogy, uncovering the privacy and ownership concerns raised by one of the largest data mining operations in history—an operation driven by Big Religion, Big Business and Big Tech. A conversation with writer-director Julia Creet of York University will follow the screening.
