A piece of truth

Facts and figures are often presented as the indisputable truth. “But they’re just as much a makeable product as a piece of cheese,” argues Hannah Vischer. “Choices are made, a point of view is taken and details are left out. Objectivity is in fact non-existent.” To illustrate this, she made a short satirical movie about an informative shop that offers a variety of pie charts, which are produced in the back. These ‘pieces of information’ come in any flavour you like. Take your pick: do you want it extremely positive, a little bit of everything or dark and dramatic? Which story do you buy?
