Diamanda s'en va - Film - 20min - 2020

présenté dans le cadre de l'exposition Panorama 22


Paris, in the near future. A secret organization prepares the hacking of a datacenter. To remain anonymous during their meetings, the hackers take the appearance of the missing members of the organization.

These transformations occur thanks to a pirate process itself, the Deepfake, which consists in replacing a face with another digitally by training the computer to associate images (Machine Learning). These digital masks, which have been troubling the internet for several years, are displayed here in public spaces, where they disrupt the recognition of characters and therefore the monitoring of their movements in the city.
