What does journalism look like when lies trump truth, clicks control the news, and layoffs abound? After Fact (2020) is an unvarnished, observational portrait of real-life news work in Canada. A broadcast investigative journalist uncovers a policy chasm that puts schoolchildren’s lives at risk. A small-city reporter watches colleagues’ desks empty as she fights to believe her job still matters. A tough young City Hall reporter puts a human face to decayed housing. Canada’s first crowdfunded independent journalist covers city council with no other reporters in sight. Filmed over the course of three years during a cataclysmic shift in the business of news, After Fact (2020) documents what we all stand to lose in the face of journalism’s decline.
