DEPP V HEARD: NETFLIX TO EXAMINE CASE IN NEW DOCUMENTARY SERIES
Depp v Heard examines the infamous defamation case that captured the world’s attention as the first Trial by TikTok, and questions the nature of truth and the role it plays in our modern society.
Depp v Heard is a new limited series from director Emma Cooper which covers the trial with the goal of "presenting a neutral overview of what happens when the court of public opinion starts to overshadow reality".
For the first time, the three-part series presents Depp and Heard’s testimony side-by-side, using 200 hours of live-streamed trial coverage from the mainstream news and citizen commentators on TikTok and Twitter.
Ultimately, Depp v. Heard interrogates the role social media played in the trial, raising provocative, uncomfortable questions about how the conversations happening outside the courtroom may have influenced the outcome.
Depp V Heard lands Wednesday 16th August on Netflix.
