Step 2: Big brother is watching you

Big brother? Wasn’t that the name of a TV show?
But he first came up in a book: 1984, by the British writer George Orwell.

The  man who made this film below walks around the streets of New York filming whoever he wants, without asking.

Take a look what happens. 

Is he allowed to do that?


Teacher Tip

Start a class discussion:

  1. Is he allowed to do that?
  2. What would you do if someone started filming you on the street?
