Catfish Screening & Directors Q & A February 12

| No Comments
with a Q&A with Directors Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost

We meet New York photographer Nev Schulman, brother of director Ariel, as he unwraps a painting of one of his photos by a young Michigan girl named Abby. They become Facebook friends, which eventually leads to Nev�s online romance with Abby�s older sister, Megan. But as he comes closer to meeting Megan in person, Nev uncovers some unsettling information. The Social Network is about origins, but Catfish, at once narrower and more universal in implication, is about consequences. The story Catfish has to tell, at least in part, is older than the Internet, and certainly not limited to the latest technology. America is the land of spurious, seat-of-the-pants self-invention, and Mr. Joost and Mr. Schulman, a couple of young men with cameras and college degrees, find themselves in a real-life variation on a venerable American theme.
Co-produced by the MCAC, The Raconteur and The Forum Theatre
