From May until December Impakt will organise the film series Post-truth Cinema in collaboration with Cinema ‘t Hoogt. By means of documentaries and feature films the programme looks at our current political landscape and aspects such as political brainwashing, media manipulation, the influence of lobbying, tactics of distraction and fake news, Internet activism and media ethics.
The first film of this series is the documentary The Cleaners by Hans Block and Moritz Riesewieck. The film takes a critical look at Facebook and the shadowy underworld of the Internet where questionable content is removed.
The film will be introduced by Eva de Valk, a journalist in the area of technology and innovation. She is responsible for the technology section of the NRC newspaper and frequently provides commentary for Dutch national television as a “tech-friend” about the societal impact of technology. After the screening she will discuss the film with Impakt director Arjon Dunnewind.
More information about the films and speakers in the Post-truth cinema series will be announced soon!
