The Clean­ers (MA15+) The Clean­ers, a well-made and in­for­ma­tive Ger­man doc­u­men­tary by Moritz Riesewieck and Hans Block, re­veals that Face­book, Twit­ter and Google em­ploy a com­pany based in Manila to act as “con­tent mod­er­a­tors” and that those ac­tu­ally do­ing the “mod­er­at­ing” are mainly young and mostly come from poor back­grounds — yet they’re ex­pected to make split-sec­ond de­ci­sions that may af­fect the lives of thou­sands. Though The Clean­ers, which is filmed in an omi­nous, noirish style, suf­fers from some un­nec­es­sary pad­ding, it’s a re­veal­ing and timely doc­u­men­tary.
