Catfish - Preview & competition
Preview by Jack Foley
CATFISH centers on a riveting mystery that is a product of our times, where social networking, mobile devices, and electronic communication so often replace face-to-face personal contact.
Henry Joost, Nev Schulman and Ariel Schulman’s compassionate documentary is a remarkable and powerful story of grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.
Produced by Andrew Jarecki & Marc Smerling (producers of 2003 Academy Award nominated Capturing the Friedmans), Catfish is released in the UK on DVD on January 10.
