Transmedia storytelling fragments the narration on various media and thus offers a strong variety of
content. Content created must be consistent with the specificities of the medium and the media on
which they are then distributed. Each content can be understood independently of the others and
brings a fresh intake on the story, but they always form a coherent whole in the end.
In addition, many media today offer to the public multiple entry points in the narrative of a story
that represent as many opportunities to be in contact with the target audience. By combining various
contents and media, transmedia storytelling allows to reach a wide audience and creates true
interactions from one medium to another.
Through the example of transmedia documentary The Uncondemned: Rape as a War Strategy we
revisit the rules of transmedia storytelling linked to engaged and activist documentary.
