THE MEDIA, THE WORLD AND I
(OV French, with English subtitles)
A film by Anne-Sophie Novel
Sunday, 24 October at 11 a.m.
Cinérama Empire, 72 rue de Carouge, Geneva
Fake news, infobesity, rejection of the media, distrust of journalists... The press is in trouble, and the public seems to be fed up with the information poured over the airwaves from morning to night. Why and how did we get here? Is it possible to renew the journalistic profession? Is it possible to adopt a different posture between producer and consumer of news? Through this investigation, the director, herself a journalist, shares her experience, her questions, and investigates the effects of today's news production on how we see the world. In a journey that takes us from Denmark to the United States, via France and the United Kingdom, journalists and other professionals ask: isn't it time, in the profession and with the public, to look at new ways of doing things?
After the screening, join us for the discussion on:
