Lecture subject: “Journey to the Truth”
A behind-the-scenes look at the work of an investigative reporter. How do you gain trust? How can you penetrate the protective walls that interviewees surround themselves with? How do you decide what is true and what is fake? When do you ask questions, and when do you keep silent? What are the obstacles to getting the truth, and when should you apply pressure to get at the facts?
During the lecture, Omri Assenheim will screen relevant excerpts from his documentaries and films and recount some of the extraordinary encounters with the major players he interviewed.
