Film Screening: ‘Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-Truth World’ (2018)
April 4, 2019 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This feature documentary follows an international team of open-source investigative journalists trained in social media mining, reconstruction techniques and visual analysis to shed light on news stories that are shrouded in secrecy, conspiracies and state-sponsored political spin. These range from the downing of the MH17 passenger airplane over Ukraine in the summer of 2014, the atrocities of the Syrian Civil War and most recently, the poisoning of a former Russian secret agent in the United Kingdom.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with Aric Toler, Bellingcat’s senior U.S. member. He leads the collective’s Eurasia–Eastern Europe team, focusing on verification of Russian and Ukrainian media, the war in eastern Ukraine and Russia’s linkages to the American–European far right movements.
Free event parking is available after 5pm at the GEC/McCauley parking deck underneath the FedEx Global Education Center (entrance on Pharmacy Lane).
