OII’s Wednesday Webinar Week 9 ‘People You May Know’
A unique opportunity for a discussion and Q&A with the co-directors and star of ‘People You May Know’, Dr Charles Kriel & Katharina Gellein Viken. This documentary is about Charles Kriel, specialist advisor to UK parliament on disinformation, who discovers Cambridge Analytica collaborating with a company creating a microtargeting platform for US churches, targeting vulnerable people, the poor, the grieving, the addicted, to radicalise them for far right politics. Going undercover he risks everything to gain access where no outsider has set foot.
Prior to the event registrants will be provided a link to enable free viewing of the documentary in advance of this session.
