Bellingcat - Truth in a Post-Truth World, directed by Hans Pool, won in the Documentary category at the International Emmy Awards in New York
The Dutch VPRO production left behind the Brazilian documentary A Primeira Pedra, Louis Theroux’s Altered States and Witness: India's Forbidden Love by Al Jazeera English in the Documentary category.
Bellingcat - Truth in a Post-Truth World follows an international team of citizen journalists who use their knowledge of social media, reconstruction techniques and audio analysis to conduct in-depth research.
For example to the MH17 disaster, via Google Earth, dashcam images and Facebook profiles. Or to the abuses in Syria, where videos are accurately checked for authenticity, and then stored in a large database for possible future lawsuits.
Nevertheless, lots of specialist do not trust the results of investigations, that are presented by Bellingcat.
