With editor Jonathan Rippon in person
Please note: After purchasing/picking up your ticket at the Museum’s front desk, please go to The Zukor Theater at Kaufman Astoria Studios, 34-12 36 St (enter on 35 St, between 34 and 35 Ave). This theater is without handicap accessible ramps.
This is presented as a double-feature alongside The Pain of Others. A single ticket to either film grants entry to both.
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 and identities we present can mutate and warp once they’re shared.
“The experience of watching it is exhilarating: the edit is furious, re-purposing 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
