Dean Fleischer-Camp \ Fraud



Like me, film maker, Dean Fleischer-Camp, came across hundreds of hours of home movies on a family’s YouTube channel and through the skill of editing he created Fraud, a constructed narrative of the greed and desperation of an American family, showing the extreme lengths they would go to feed their addiction. Fleischer-Camp's choice of utilising the found footage of a real family provokes an unnerving and bizarre atmosphere that sits somewhere between reality and falsity. Following the films screening it sparked quite a bit of controversy about the responsibilities of the truth as Fleischer-Camp chose to classify Fraud as a documentary. However, given the film’s title, classifying it to the wrong genre claim seems completely appropriate.
