FACT OR FAKE: Truth on FilmJuly 15, 2019
Fact or Fake: Truth On Film is a program curated around the notion of TRUTH, the central theme of this year’s edition of the festival, bringing 11 films that explore the notion of TRUTH both literally and cinematically.
In there you’ll find films that shed light to truths (sometimes also lies), such as to the rise of right-wing populism in Hungary, war on drugs in Philippines, mysteries around the death of UN secretary-general, fabricated trial in Stalin’s USSR or mass murder of Jews in Odessa in 1941 by Romanian army. Also stories from Myanmar’s difficult transition path into democracy or globe-trotting search for what democracy is actually! Stories of a whistleblower fighting the system or small collective of citizen journalists uncovering MH17 disaster and poisoning of a Russian spy in the UK. And that famous story about art forgery told by one of the greatest masters of cinema.
