WE, AS A HOAX

documentary

Summary

WE, AS A HOAX is a documentary series that dismantles the workings of misinformation in the age of social networks.
At the heart of a complex algorithmic system, each of our clicks - from likes to comments, retweets to stories - feeds the machine. By relaying information, true or false, we become full-fledged publishers. To understand why and how misinformation circulates, it is, therefore, crucial to ask the question: how does it relate to information? The answer may be more disturbing than expected.
