Future of Fact

Online manipulation and immersive media have begun to eradicate our shared notion of authenticity and trust. How will society change when we can no longer believe what we see, hear, or think?

What Happens Next is a video exploration of the future from Quartz and Retro Report. It is a series of deeply reported short documentaries that examine radical transformations coming to central aspects of life in the near future, through the experience of people already living them. Through the series, we’ll meet technologists building a new means of global exchange; workers taking up revolutionary tools; and farmers preparing for a changing climate.
