From the award-winning producers and correspondents at VICE News, VICE Investigates features stories told through a distinct reporting lens, immersive narratives and fresh perspectives on the important — and sometimes controversial — issues defining today’s culture.
S1 Episode 105 ‘Disgrace’
What happens to the accused and the community after public allegations of sexual misconduct? VICE News reporter Isobel Yeung delves into the messy, complex conversation that takes stock of where we are two years since the height of the #MeToo movement.
S1 Episode 104 ‘K-POP Machine’
No industry is as image-conscious or as micro-managed as K-Pop. Which is why the December 2017 suicide of Kim Jong-hyun, singer in SHINee, was such a revealing moment. In a note that described his deep depression and the grueling demands of his contract, Jong-hyun brought the costs of Korea’s largest cultural export into sharp relief. VICE goes inside the K-pop industry to reveal how the country’s record labels and entertainment conglomerates find, groom, and train the kids who want global fame, and learns why young Koreans are so eager to sacrifice their youth with no guarantee of success.
S1 Episode 103 ‘Amazon On Fire’
Emmy award-winning VICE News correspondent Seb Walker will take audiences to the front lines of the fires blazing throughout the Amazon where politics are rolling back decades of work to save the forest and potentially the planet. As Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro is confronted with an unprecedented ecological disaster conservationists are placing blame squarely at his feet. Key interviews include French President Emmanuel Macron, an outspoken critic of the government’s response, as well as indigenous people and ranchers who have been living on the land for generations but are in bitter opposition over its value, legacy and stewardship.
S1 Episode 102 ‘A Middle East Divided’
After almost two years of reporting around the globe, VICE Founder Shane Smith provides a definitive look at the escalating tensions in the world’s most volatile region. With authoritarianism on the rise, record-breaking military spending, and ever increasing tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia, VICE travels to Yemen, Israel, Bahrain, and Lebanon to better understand the Middle East’s ever-changing geopolitical landscape. The episode will feature on-the-ground reporting and new in-depth interviews with world leaders including Senior White House Advisor Jared Kushner and the architect behind Trump’s Iran policy, Brian Hook.
S1 Episode 101 ‘Russia’s War on Hip-Hop’
Hip-hop has taken Russia by storm, quickly becoming one of the most popular genres among young people. But the Kremlin claims Hip-hop artists are encouraging drug use, violence, and other social ills, and now their concerts are being cancelled. Emmy award-winning VICE News correspondent Alzo Slade embeds with Russia’s most controversial musicians to explore artistic freedom under Putin’s governance and examines the intersection of culture and politics though this new cultural phenomena.
