The Cleaners unearths the extraordinary truth behind the anonymous individuals who deal with the fallout of Facebook's "report" button. Who are the cleaners, how much power do they have over what we see or don't see - and what kind of effect does this work have on a person?
In this gripping neon-lit documentary, all these questions and more will be asked, and possibly answered. Stronger Than Fiction's screening of The Cleaners will be introduced by Emerson Sanchez.
