Director Bio

Director Statement

I wanted to make a film about the information and misinformation that exists in the web and the fake stories that have prevailed over the past few years. These stories come in very convincing manners, with photos, sources and concrete proof, but on a closer look they fall apart. This is a black comedy which starts as one more of those viral Facebook posts which claim that someone discovered a mermaid in Australia, or Stanley Kubrick directed the moon landing, but in the end, tries to push us to examine each and every little thing closer.
