Event description
iMET presents: BELLINGCAT: TRUTH IN A POST-TRUTH WORLD + PANEL DISCUSSION + SALAM

About this Event

Preceded by Short Film: SALAM (dir. Claire Fowler)

A female Lyft driver navigates the night shift in New York City while waiting to hear life-or-death news from her family in Syria.

BELLINGCAT: TRUTH IN A POST-TRUTH WORLD follows the revolutionary rise of the “citizen investigative journalist” collective known as Bellingcat, a group of online researchers dedicated to exposing the truth of impenetrable news stories from around the world – from the MH17 disaster to the Syrian Civil War to the mysterious poisoning of a Russian spy in the United Kingdom.

Bellingcat uses cutting-edge digital techniques and crowdsourcing to create a faster, more innovative approach than traditional research journalism. For the first time, Bellingcat researchers in Germany, the Netherlands, Finland and the United States have given exclusive access to filmmaker Hans Pool, allowing him to follow the group on their path to demonstrate the power of open source investigation.

PANEL DISCUSSION with Padraic Ryan (Head of News Intelligence, Storyful); Dr. Gerry Waldron (National Security Summit Ireland); Dr. Fergal Quinn (UL) and via skype Christiaan Triebert (New York Times Visual Investigations Unit/Bellingcat).
