Movie Night 'Fake News'
In the age of ‘fake news’ and ‘alternative facts’ the role of journalism seems more important than ever. This night we'll watch an episode from the impressive documentary series De Pen & Het Zwaard ('The Pen and the Sword') by journalist Fidan Ekiz that was broadcasted on Dutch tv last year. In this episode she visits Russia (currently 148th on the World Press Freedom index) to explore the local media landscape.
The documentary is followed by a talk about the importance of journalism in your life. This evening is hosted by Jonas Kooyman from Vandejong.
The documentary is in Dutch. Let us know if you want to join.
