In this illuminating documentary, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Andrew Rossi, journalists, educators and researchers working to expose "fake news" discuss its real-life, high-stakes consequences. Drawing from exclusive verite access to the victims and perpetrators of fake news stories and a variety of experts, as well as purveyors and targets of misinformation, "After Truth" sheds light on some of the most dire examples of post-truth culture. The film focuses on several high-profile fake news stories from recent years. Enlightening, galvanizing and unnerving, this feature-length documentary analyzes the human toll of disinformation to paint a dynamic portrait of a phenomena that is said to jeopardize the very future of American democracy.
