Bellingcat – Truth in a Post-Truth World

by Hans Pool Hashtag #SpeakingTheTruth

Investigative journalism from your own living room? The passionate, independent citizen journalists of the “Bellingcat” collective show how it is done. In times of fake news, alternative facts and reduced resources in the established media houses, they are a self-organised “open source” group of reporters that uses the dormant information potential of social media feeds and other remote corners of the Internet. Their methods hence significantly contributed to the elucidation of the MH17 disaster or the poison attack on the British double agent Sergei Skripal. In the form of a tense documentary thriller, director Hans Pool shows the elaborate path taken by a few devoted autodidacts in the assumption of their role as a global fourth power.
