Can you trust what you see on TV? On Facebook? Ghosts in the Machine is new work by American and Russian filmmakers that questions our ability to tell fact from fiction in media.
The documentary also investigates the outsized role that the Russian-American rivalry plays in both nations’ collective imaginations and how that provides fertile ground for manipulation.
The four filmmakers–Americans Dimitri Devyatkin and Lori Felker, and Russians Dmitrii Kalashnikov and Mikhail Zheleznikov–used archival footage from Media Burn to create the 65-minute film.
The film was produced by Media Burn Archive and funded through an International Connections Fund grant of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
All four filmmakers will be coming to Chicago to screen the film and take part in spirited debate. Please join us!
