Barbara Bachmann “Sex, Lügen und Youtube“
Tiziana Cantone, a young Italian woman, shot several sex videos for her own use. When the videos were distributed online against her will, she started a desperate campaign to have the videos removed. Her appeals were ignored and she took her own life. The German reporter Barbara Bachman reconstructs Tiziana’s final months and presents us with a harrowing commentary on cyber mobbing. Her article was awarded with the Axel Springer Award in 2018.
