"Everything´s Under Control" is an evocative film about the self-evidence of surveillance.

Facebook, Amazon and Google provide us with around the clock access to the convinient digital world! Surveillance cameras on the streets take care of our security. But who actually collects our fingerprints, iris scans, online shopping preferences, and social media posting? Don´t we care about our privacy anymore?

In his unique charming and curious way filmmaker Werner Boote travels around the world to explore the "brave new world" of total control.
