TRUST ME explores manipulation and misinformation at the intersection of human nature and information technology. The documentary gives audiences a front row seat to the efforts of individuals, educators, and government regulators to promote journalistic integrity and media literacy around the world. Drawing on stories from teachers and students in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Durango, CO schools, parents in Chicago, law enforcement in India and anti-vaxxers in New Zealand, experts share how media literacy can promote trust and help overcome anxiety, depression, violence, and crime.

TRUST ME highlights the urgency of an education for the 21st century ensuring that students are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary for discerning the truth and being mindful of the dangers of ideological filtering.
