Fraud

Directed by Dean Fleischer-Camp
2016, 52min

 

While digging through the cyber-heaps of footage readily available on YouTube, filmmaker Dean Fleischer-Camp (Marcel the Shell) came upon over 100 hours of home movie video documenting the birthday parties, afternoons spent at the playground, and mall trips of an unknown American family. Commenting on the fluid natures of digital storytelling and voyeurism, Fleischer-Camp masterfully re-edited the footage to create Fraud, a provocative narrative that paints a wild new portrait of the family and their day-to-day lives. A found-footage film in the truest sense, Fraud explores what happens when a new, unexpected narrative is imposed on the virtual detritus of our lives.

 
A Meaning Full Life

Directed by Young Jean Lee
2015, 13min

 

A genre-bending portrait of Sheikhar Boodram, a Puerto Rican/Guyanese/Indian teenager from the Bronx, told through a script written by Sheikhar when he was fifteen and performed by Wooster Group stalwarts Wallace Shawn, Paul Lazar and Kate Valk.
