MLI “Trust Me” documentary screening and discussion


Next Monday, Media Literacy Ireland is hosting a discussion on the documentary “Trust Me” by the US-based Getting Better Foundation.

Trust Me is a 90 minute documentary exploring human nature, information technology, and the need for media literacy to help people trust one another, bring them together and create a more resilient population.

The film explores how an avalanche of negative news and mis-information is making us all terrified of the world. This has led to mistrust of others, which further leads to racism, polarization, mental health disorders and even crime.

Register here to watch the documentary in advance of the panel discussion. The panel discussion will feature Executive Producer Joe Phelps along with David O’Mahony (IFI), Susan Daly (TheJournal), and Eileen Culloty (DCU).

Watch the documentary trailer here.

The screening is part of Media Literacy Ireland‘s ongoing series of Media Literacy Monday webinars.
