Second short doc on the information disorder in Ethiopia

The DDMAC video about Rohobot Ayalew visualizes how her position as a fact checker at HaqCheck is essential to track misleading edits of war footage spread on social media. Her personal story illustrates how disinformation and hate speech can be a direct threat to someone’s life as it may incite hate crimes.

The documentary is part of the DDMAC (Decoding Digital Media in African Regions of Conflicts) research project and is made by Loretta van der Horst.
