Bellingcat – Truth in a Post-Truth World
Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-Truth World explores the promise of open source investigation, taking viewers inside the exclusive world of the "citizen investigative journalist" collective known as Bellingcat. While the major news organisations are still checking the facts using their own established sources, clever internet users are discovering that there are also smarter and more accurate ways to do it yourself.
This documentary follows an international team of citizen investigative journalists who are using their knowledge of social media, reconstruction techniques and audio analysis to conduct in-depth research, for instance on Syrian war crimes.
The film will be introduced by a scientist.
This programme is in cooperation with Lumière Cinema.
