History seems far from reaching an end but the history-documentary may be closer to its demise. Web-interactive formats are breathing fresh life into the genre. The director of the webdoc FARSELONA invites storytellers to ponder on how transmedia and other technologies help keep vital historical content appealing to future generations. The session looks into other history webdocs that stray from traditional documentary maxims and reach out to younger users. This can be done without sacrificing in-depth content: it appears there is no need to underestimate the public's ability to tackle complex themes, as long as said subject matter is presented in the most capturing of forms: interaction.
