Post-Truth: How Bullshit Conquered The World
Director: Katharine Round & Ben Steele
Running Time: 80′
A Conversation with James Ball (Wikileaks, BuzzFeed) + Dearborn (Guardian Docs), hosted by Dino Sofos (BBC Politics)
With the seismic events of Brexit and the election of Donald Trump, reality seems to have been turned on its axis. £350 million a week for the NHS, Pizzagate, Making America Great Again, building the wall, Brexit, taking our country back, fake news…the world in 2017 is a place where cold, hard facts have less importance than ever before. With people seemingly willing to believe anything, and political figures able to deny the things they said the day before, we all need to get a serious grip on reality.
Join EEFF for a special in-conversation event with James Ball (Wikileaks, The Guardian, BuzzFeed) about his new book Post-Truth: How Bullshit Conquered The World, followed by the World Premiere of Dearborn, a new film from Katharine Round (The Divide) and Ben Steele about the American town that finds itself at the centre of the new political climate. An event to make sense of a world where mistruths and conspiracy theories run riot.
Dearborn, dirs. Katharine Round & Ben Steele for the Guardian, Executive Producers Charlie Phillips & Lindsay Poulton. James Ball’s book Post-Truth: How Bullshit Conquered the World, is out now. To order a copy, click here.
