The Story Behind Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-Truth World

Hans Pool’s latest documentary, first aired on Sunday at the South by Southwest festival, is called Bellingcat: Truth in a Post-Truth World.

From Wired

The film tells the story of Bellingcat, a collective of investigative researchers, many of whom started as amateurs, who spend their off hours meticulously stringing together kernels of information they find online, in order to expose some of the world’s most notorious operatives.

I’ve highlighted some of their work, which has stood up well. Bellingcat and The Insider were the first to identify the two Russian military intelligence officers behind the attempted poisoning of Russian turncoat agent Sergey Skirpal. The story was subsequently confirmed by the Associated Press and is no longer denied by the Russian government.
