A documentary about the future – concerning fake news – An Artist’s Talk by Yoshinori Niwa. Introduced by Shiro Masayuma.
“Fake news” has rapidly become a catch-all term for dubious news stories that barely attempt to adhere to basic journalistic standards. Artist Yoshinori Niwa looks beyond the headlines and wonders if these are the stories that people really want to hear. Are we living in a post-truth era? Is ‘fake news’ more palatable than the ‘real’ news that we are presented with? Yoshinori Niwa’s documentary on the future will be fake, but it may uncover some unexpected truths.
