Event description
Can you trust what you see on TV? On Facebook? This film by Americans and Russians questions our ability to tell fact from fiction in media.

About this Event

The documentary also investigates the outsized role that the Russian-American rivalry plays in both nations' collective imaginations and how that provides fertile ground for manipulation.

The four filmmakers--Americans Dimitri Devyatkin and Lori Felker, and Russians Dmitrii Kalashnikov and Mikhail Zheleznikov--used archival footage from Media Burn to create the 65-minute film.

The film was produced by Media Burn Archive and funded through an International Connections Fund grant of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.

The four filmmakers will be coming to Chicago to screen the film and engage in spirited debate.
