A thief can learn a lot about you if they steal your phone. What between the pictures and the emails and the texts, you're whole life is basically in there. But, if you do it right, you could also learn a lot about a thief using the very phone they stole. That's the premise of this absolutely fantastic documentary by Anthony van der Meer.

According to van der Meer, “After my phone got stolen, I quickly realized just how much of my personal information and data the thief had instantly obtained. So, I let another phone get stolen. This time my phone was pre-programmed with spyware so I could keep tabs on the thief in order to get to know him. However, to what extent is it possible to truly get to know someone by going through the content of their phone?” Watch the film below!
