Selling Lies, the fast-paced, investigative documentary from Academy-Award nominated filmmaker Leslie Iwerks, director of the critically-acclaimed docuseries, “The Imagineering Story” on Disney+, and granddaughter of Ub Iwerks, co-creator of Mickey Mouse, goes behind the scenes to uncover how hundreds of Macedonian teenagers discovered a digital gold rush by spreading fake political news on Facebook in 2016.
The riveting documentary short goes deep inside the Macedonian fake news industry and unveils the truth behind the lies that made headlines during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Selling Lies offers a rare glimpse inside the secret network behind the websites that the Macedonian teenagers created, and explores how disinformation campaigns are continuing to strongly impact the U.S. today leading into the 2020 elections.
