Are we a threat? Anthropologist David Graeber, Author of “Debt: The first 5000 Years

Spied Upon is an upcoming documentary film that shows the human story of what it’s like to be targeted by secret police, while revealing at a human scale today’s complex international spying apparatus, a system that has spun out of control.

Anthropologist David Graeber is a Professor at the London School of Economics. He has written eight books, most recently:
– Revolutions in Reverse: Essays on Politics, Violence, Art, and Imagination
– The Democracy Project: A History, a Crisis, a Movement
– Debt: The First 5000 Years

My name is Jason Kirkpatrick, I’m a documentary director who is also passionate about the environment, and issues of social justice. When many of my colleagues and I found out that one of our best friends was an undercover cop who had targeted us intensely for years, I immediately knew I had to create a film about what had happened. Making the film Spied Upon and telling the story of how this internationally scandalous operation and others like it work, is a project that has totally consumed me for the past three years.

Your support is crucial to help bring this film to people across the world, and to help stop current abuses happening to people. For more info, please visit
