The Atlantic’s groundbreaking and prescient editorial series “Shadowland”––which reported on the increasing hold that conspiracy theories have over Americans and the threats they pose to democracy––has inspired a documentary series of the same name that will premiere on Peacock next month.
Peacock announced today that the six-part docuseries Shadowland will premiere Wednesday, September 21, with all six episodes available to watch immediately. The series––created by Academy Award–nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger and RadicalMedia, producers of this year’s Academy Award–winning Best Documentary Feature Summer of Soul––marks the first time The Atlantic has partnered with filmmakers to produce a docuseries inspired by its reporting and featuring its journalists.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 insurrection, former President Donald Trump’s perpetuation of the Big Lie of a stolen election, and a segment of the country’s continued COVID-19 and vaccine denial, Berlinger sent documentary teams across America to uncover how conspiracy theories have moved from the margins to the mainstream, and why they are more powerful and dangerous than ever. The deeply immersive series embeds with subjects who have rejected mainstream narratives to explore how people come to their beliefs, and what makes these theories so alluring. The resulting Shadowland episodes demonstrate the influence of conspiracy thinking on the functioning of our democracy, as families, friends, and the nation are being torn apart.

Thanks! Do you think they make conspiracy theorists look like total lunatics in this docu-series?

I find it hard to figure out what "normal" people think watching this stuff.

There's enough in there that I watch it agreeing with many of the quoted parts from "conspiracy theorists".

However then they twist it to only be about money, or psychological illness.

So maybe not total lunatics :)

It's too bad, Q-Anon now represents what conspiracy research looks like to "normal" people. Perhaps it was designed that way for psychological warfare purposes, to confuse all of those political issues...

As a certified crazy person, I actually encoded these using x264, not x265.

I shall maybe rectify this and re-upload.

I've encoded these as x265 now, to save you even more hard drive space with no noticeable loss of quality!

What program do you use? Is it Handbrake? I never fully got the hang of that one, but I should give it another try...

Handbrake is a GUI for ffmpeg... which is on the command-line, and I mistakenly instructed it to use libx264 instead of libx265.
