IMPAKT Event: Bellingcat, Truth in a Post-truth World
Location: Filmtheater ‘t Hoogt
Join us for the screening of the film Bellingcat, Truth in a Post-truth World, a new documentary about Eliot Higgins and open source investigation collective Bellingcat directed by Hans Pool. The screening is organised with Cinema ‘t Hoogt and IDFA.
They were behind nearly all of the discoveries in the case around the MH-17 disaster and proved that Russia was responsible. A group of nerds and stay-at-home dads who uncovered fake news and became the thorn in the side of the global powers and secret services. They call themselves Bellingcat, analogous to the cat that receives a bell around its neck, so the mice are safe. For the first time we get to see the men behind this story.
Afterwards director Hans Pool will join us from IDFA for a Q&A via live stream.
