Ghosts in the Machine

Ghosts in the Machine is a collaborative 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.

The pieces include:

Deceive with Belief by Lori Felker

Denial Ain’t Just a River in Egypt by Dimitri Devyatkin

Who Will Remember You Forever? by Mikhail Zheleznikov

This is a Test by Dmitrii Kalashnikov
