IMPAKT Event: Post-truth Cinema - Hypernormalisation
Location: IMPAKT Centre for Media Culture
For this special edition of Post-truth Cinema, IMPAKT presents a screening of HyperNormalisation, the latest film by Impakt Festival 2017 keynote speaker Adam Curtis. The screening will be preceded at 16:30 by a lecture by artist Jonas Staal and at 18:00 by stand-up dinner. Read more about it here.
In his documentary HyperNormalisation from 2016, documentary maker Adam Curtis researches how governments and technological Utopians have replaced the complexity of the ‘real’ world with a much simpler world in which consumption is central, complex problems have simple solutions and the boundaries between politics and entertainment are increasingly difficult to find.
Every second Wednesday of the month from May until December, Impakt and Cinema ‘t Hoogt will organise the film series Post-truth Cinema. 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.
