'Catfish' emerged from Sundance as one of the most exciting, talked about documentaries of the year.
In late 2007, filmmakers Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost sensed a story unfolding as they began to film the life of Ariel's brother, Nev. As Nev tentatively forms an online relationship, events unfold that leads him to question the nature of truth and identity.
Despite accusations of exploitation the film still stands as a shocking product of our times that is made even more fascinating by the questioning claims of its critics.
