Discussion : Images of extremism

Demonstrations in Charlottesville and Quebec City in 2017 shed new light on far-right groups, by giving them fresh exposure. In 2019, how should we look at the media coverage they were given? Panelists from the documentary industry, the media and academia will discuss the portrayal in words and images of these movements, their members and the reactions they provoke.
