Through the video collage of THE ECLIPSE OF THE BLACK SUN, the aesthetics and language of contemporary neo-fascist propaganda are examined. Found footage collected from social media channels of neo-Nazi groups and conspiracy theories promoters are embedded in a staged children's news program. In particular, the channels of the Proud Boys, the Identitarian Movement, Nordkreuz, the Nordic Movement and the Young Alternative were examined. In the film, children reenacted well-known figures from the right-wing scene.
