For the Record

Description

In the face of a 24-hour news cycle rife with punditry and accusations of fakery, the subjects of truth and evidence remain more vital and contested than ever. Motivated by a curiosity about how and when images are accepted as fact, “For the Record” presents a combination of new and classic documentary films that explore and interrogate cinematic realism.

Recognizing the important role that history plays in shaping our communities, this season the Nickelodeon invites you to join us for thought-provoking films and conversations about the forces that mediate our encounters with the past and influence our decisions for the future.

Special thanks to our series sponsors, Susan Thorpe and John Baynes.
