Fraud (Encore w/ director Dean Fleischer-Camp in person!)

A great feat of editing, Fraud follows a working class family in pursuit of the contemporary, ultra-capitalist American Dream… or so it seems. With an impressionistic meta-narrative constructed from one family’s 100+ hours of confessional YouTube uploads, Fleischer-Camp’s succinct piece revels in the slippery relation between fact and fantasy on the World Wide Web. Composed entirely of found-footage, Fraud challenges the bounds of both documentary and narrative at every turn, suggesting that perhaps, it’s neither.

Dir. Dean Fleischer-Camp, 2016, DCP, 52 min.
