Interesting … scary .. very true. This was my thoughts by the end of the short film Blaxties. There are so many issues and interesting points to take into consideration, that I as a student can personally relate to! But before I get started, I would first like to say that the beautifully directed and simplistic way the film was made gave way to the message (the ones I am interpreting at least.)
I feel like Jade during these current times; as she is watched by her doctor through her social activities, and as I am being watched by my job. My case was not as extreme as Jade’s (she was being denied medical treatment.. that was really messed up to me), but in order for me to be get paid, to pay my bills, living, etc., I have to document every moment I do within the hours I claimed I worked. I feels Jade’s pain in a sense that, in order to get a necessity, we need to give up our rights of privacy.
