Director: Dean Fleischer-Camp
Production Company: Memory / Rough House Pictures

A family's home movies document a desperate crime spree and a bid to outrun the consequences…Or do they? In this meta-fiction thriller, an average family’s youtube videos have been edited to resemble something quite different. An extraordinary feat of editing, a provocative parable of the pursuit of happiness, and a disturbing demonstration of the mutability of the stories we share in the Internet age, FRAUD defies simplistic definition. Controversial upon its debut, FRAUD has since been described as a "brilliantly provocative” (Filmmaker) and “exhilarating” (Sight+Sound) “masterwork” (Documentary Magazine) that “pushes the boundaries of documentary” (Variety).
