Programme 2017

Who owns the truth? 

The government or the people? The citizens or the corporations?

According to contemporary liberal discourse social media is facilitating the spread of 'fake news' in an unprecedented way. But manipulation of the 'news,' (otherwise known as lying), has been a central part of 'democratic' politics forever. The films selected this year explore the relationship between government, big business and the press and how the flow of information and ideas available to the rest of us is influenced, controlled and manipulated.
