Dir. Dean Fleischer-Camp. 2016. 52 mins. Digital projection. An impressionistic meta-fiction born from the manipulation of hundreds of hours of innocuous uploads to YouTube, Fraud posits a family’s desperate criminal enterprise from seemingly innocuous home movies. Deftly and provocatively constructed, Fraud is both a work of internet-sourced found footage and a devious exploration of how the stories and identities we present can mutate and warp once they’re shared. “The experience of watching it is exhilarating: the edit is furious, repurposing split-seconds of probably mundane material to construct something approaching a crime thriller while implicitly warning against the dangers of social-media oversharing.” —Ben Nicholson, Sight & Sound
