Description

Deepfake technology can create video evidence of just about anything:

Hollywood superstar Margot Robbie in an orgy
Chinese president Xi Jinping declaring nuclear war
basketball legend Michael Jordan winning the World Cup.

The only limit is the imagination.

In a time where fake news and disinformation is becoming harder and harder to identify, it is more essential than ever to understand the dark origins of deepfakes.

Journalist Michael Grothaus goes down the rabbit hole as he interviews the often morally dubious, yet incredibly skilled creators of this content. It’s a journey that opens a window into the communities transforming reality.

Challenging, enlightening and terrifying, Trust No One asks the question other people are too scared to: what happens when you can no longer believe your own eyes?

‘An alarming look at deepfakes’ The Sunday Times

‘Michael Grothaus takes a hard look at the growth of deep fakes, examining cases that demonstrate the threats presented by morally dubious creators. From the personal to political, the impact of deep fakes is considered carefully by Grothaus, both on the victims and on society as a whole, creating an essential picture of a growing trend in disinformation.’ Eliot Higgins, founder of Bellingcat
