How to stop social media from promoting violence, hatred and pain? Moritz Riesewieck and Hans Block’s “The cleaners,” a neon-lit documentary shot like a noir thriller, explains how digital janitors in Manila screen 25,000 Facebook posts a day and decide what to delete. What influence do they have? What are the consequences of these 'cleaning operations'?

The cleaners was screened on Thursday 17 May 2018.
