MAD MUNDO is at the core of globalisation - a web and TV format where a network of journalists and filmmakers help people understand what’s happening to them in this globalised world. Starting from the personal story, it investigates the wider context, and confronts those who are the decision-makers or who are part of the problem. In the course of the investigation the reporters, through the web and videoconferences, show everyone what they’ve uncovered. This is an educational and awareness-raising tool, and the audience can follow and take part in the progress of the investigation via the web, before the film is even shown on TV.
