Alternative Cinema: Catfish
(Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, 2010, 87 mins)
A cautionary tale of the virtual crashing into real life, and a documentary that stretches the limits of belief, Catfish changed the vocabulary of relationships over social media forever. After Nev becomes entangled with a woman online, it becomes increasingly clear that she is hiding something. As he and his filmmaker friends investigate, a mystery begins to unravel. A documentary skirting the line between reality TV and outright fiction, Catfish offers an engrossing account of deception.
