This is a blog for Camberwell Students and Staff to talk about, critique and generally think about the Foundation Film Programme (check out the other blog criticalvoices.blogspot.com)
I found this to be one of the most moving films I have seen. It is one of very few films which benefits from a little knowledge of how it was constructed. Being part documentary footage and part staged action it cleverly challenges both. The scene where the man explains his actions as a charged fraudster are uncomfortable and yet beautiful. Striking at the heart of human intentions and the way in which truth is constructed from many different perceptions. This scene was shot first in the actual court room and then a further scene was added when the judge had left the room, this is where the questions around art and ethics were added.
