What takes place every day and every second on the Internet is a raging inferno: videos of people in embarrassing and intimate situations. Victims are mocked online and in real life they remain scarred. The director monitored online and interviewed the filmers and the filmed. But isn’t her film also a stage for hatred and public humiliation?
SHAME/FAME is also the focus of two educational workshops for teachers and school children under the direction of Aycha Riffi (Grimme Academy).
In cooperation with doxs! dokumentarfilme für kinder und jugendliche, Kompetenzteams NRW, Gesamtschule Scharnhorst, Heinrich Heine Gymnasium.
Funded by DEW21.
