Eyes Above

MediaLab premiered the 2020 documentary Eyes Above, which covers surveillance technology and how it impacts society today. This technology is radically shifting the current landscapes in politics, law, intelligence gathering, military operations, law enforcement, and other prominent industries and disciplines. MediaLab is proud to have traveled to Arizona to visit the Tohono O’odham Nation along the Southern border to document and discuss the impact of surveillance technology on Native American tribal lands.
