HRHW LIVEMedia on War
Sat 18th: 18:30 Debattscenen
On war Reporting, propaganda and documentaries.
When covering war, what is important to convey? What is the purpose of war reporting? Is a filmmaker better equipped to show us what war is about?
When the media companies lack resources to have reporters on the frontlines and the time to give us proper analyses, while at the same time fake news and propaganda flourish, who will help us sort out the real stories? How can we get a better understanding of today’s wars? What is important to know? The latest images of a bomb blast, or an understanding of what it is like for the people who are the victims of war?
