In the first six months of 2017, over 2500 people around the world were killed or injured in terrorist incidents for which the IS claimed responsibility. Many of these attacks took place in countries with strident mass-surveillance laws designed to prevent just this sort of tragedy. Why was intelligence failing to prevent them? This documentary dissects the terror-attacks since Paris Bataclan in November 2015 and looks for common patterns. Why was intelligence failing? And why keep our governments pushing for more of the same? CHASING EVIL investigates surveillance reforms, power, money, and cover-ups. A search for a way out of this maze - with a glimpse of hope on the horizon.
