Media manipulation is a global issue, but in my homeland Macedonia politics dominates public discourse and information disseminated through the media is distorted by political agendas. Currently the agendas are so polarized that an outsider looking in only sees a surreal state. With my one-minute video “Media Marionette” I wanted to recreate the surreal nature of the situation and provoke viewers to wake up to the situation and to view the information being fed to the public with a critical eye.
