DIR. Shalini Kantayya | 90 min | 2020

Shalini Kantayya's sobering and gripping documentary plays like an episode of Black Mirror as we meet Buolamwini, an irrepressible "poet of code" who, while working at MIT, discovers deep inaccuracies in facial recognition technology when it encounters dark-skinned or female faces.
