The real-life MINORITY REPORT

What if the police could predict and prevent crime before it happened? Through advanced computer technology and video surveillance police in both the US and Europe are using a technology called pre-crime to gather and analyze information, which identifies individuals who will most likely perform or become victims of crime. The concept of pre-crime first turned up in the 1956 Philip K. Dick short story "Minority Report" and the documentary PRE-CRIME looks at what happens to our habits, freedom and notions of privacy when 1950's sci-fi becomes the reality of the 2010's.

Festival guest: Matthias Heeder, director has unfortunately had to cancel his visit to BIFF.
