Screen Media, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment company, announced today the acquisition of Worldwide rights to the documentary The Mandela Effect: Fact or Fiction? The documentary is directed by veteran FOX Network and NBC Universal investigative producer Robert Kiviat, best known for his hit FOX network specials Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction? and UFOs: The Best Evidence Ever Caught on Tape. Screen Media is planning an April 2024 on-demand release.The Mandela Effect: Fact or Fiction? explores the phenomenon in which masses of people have the same false memory. The phenomenon has exploded in popularity on YouTube and TikTok with close to a billion video views on the subject. The term originated in 2009 when many people said they clearly remembered news reports of Nelson Mandela dying in prison long before his actual death in 2013. The documentary explores evidence that could support why an estimated 50% of the population adamantly say they remember things from the past being different or inexplicably changed. The documentary will also delve into research findings that conclusively show people are not simply misremembering, as skeptics maintain.“The Mandela Effect has made people want to know if history is being altered,” said director Robert Kiviat. “Whether it’s malicious advanced intelligence or even the result of computer code glitches in a simulation Elon Musk says he’s certain we all live in, our team looks into all the possible causes of this phenomenon.”
