WIN: Catfish DVD

Touted as, the ‘other’ Facebook movie, Catfish, is set to be released on DVD in Australia on 16 June 2011.

The documentary follows New York photographer, (Yaniv) Nev Schulman, as he develops a Facebook friendship with 8-year Abby from Michigan. Nev is captured by his filmmaker brother Rel and friend Harry, in an intriguing documentary which provides a commentary on modern friendships.

Australian distributors of Catfish, Hopscotch Films, summarise the film as follows:

“The less you know about Catfish the better. Whatever you learn, don’t give away the ending to others. To spoil this movie is unforgivable. It’s unlike any documentary you’ve ever seen before.

It starts out with New York photographer Nev Schulman, filmmaker brother Rel and friend Henry making a film about an 8 year-old girl named Abby from Michigan, who painted an immaculate picture of one of Nev’s photographs. The painting is mailed to Nev, and soon a friendship is born. Nev starts talking to Abby’s mother, Angela, and her half-sister Megan. The all have Facebook pages, and soon Nev begins Facebook relationships with all three. His friendship with Megan, a pretty blonde twenty-something, escalates into sexually charged exchanges, and he starts to really care for her. What happens next is a sheer surprise and this funny, clever and loveable little documentary becomes a fascinating, breathtaking, heartbreaking, edge-of-your-seat look at human nature in our digital age. The internet-facebook-iphone world we’ve built for ourselves will never look the same again.”

The competition is now closed.

  35. Mos Def interested in viewing the consequences. Just goes hand-in-hand with the already ever-present voyeurism that takes place on the social network. Hook that sh*t up! Please.
