Work through the ethics, privacy and consent process with your
partners before you begin, and adapt your project accordingly.
Sometimes it means changing your whole approach – or even
dropping it. That’s the cost of being ethical. Here’s a controversial
one. An undoubtedly gripping and raw film, Through a Blue Lens
(1999) raises serious questions about the ethics, privacy and
consent issues when police arm themselves with video technology
in the “mean streets” of Vancouver. The police motivation for making
this film was honorable: they hoped to create an educational tool to
help prevent drug use among young people by filming what they
witnessed on the job every day. But video in the hands of law
enforcement is a tricky issue. How much did the subjects have a say
in the making and distribution of this film? This is one of the NFB’s
best selling DVDs of all time. But should this film have been made in
