Director: Shuchen Tan

Producer: VPRO

Genres: Documentary, Factual


We are living in an ‘infocalypse’, says British disinformation expert Nina Schick. She states that our society is suffering from information overload that blurs the distinction between ‘information’ and ‘disinformation’.

In this documentary, we look into what is ‘real’ and what is ‘fake’. Through the emergence of social media, information bubbles and the possibilities offered by Deepfakes, we no longer live in a world of shared reality. We explore the future with three prominent thinkers that highlights both the perils and the positive potential of this media.
