Trailer for Mysterious Sundance Documentary CATFISH; Plus First Images and Poster

     July 30, 2010

At the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, everyone was talking about a movie they couldn’t really talk about. That film, a documentary called Catfish, was later picked up by Rogue Pictures and the trailer just went online.

This is definitely one of those movies that you should know as little about as possible, except this. A New York photographer named Nev Schulman became friends with a family from Michigan when their youngest daughter painted a photo that Nev took. Through the internet, Nev became friends with the mother, dated the sister and was so impressed with the youngest daughter’s paintings that his brother Ariel and friend Henry Joost decided to film the whole thing. Jaw-dropping and heart-wrenching, Catfish was easily one of my favorite films I saw at Sundance this year.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser-iffic trailer, poster, some images and a synopsis, then avoid all spoilers until September 17 when Catfish will finally be released.


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. They had no idea that their project would lead to the most exhilarating and unsettling months of their lives. A reality thriller that is a shocking product of our times, Catfish is a riveting story of love, deception and grace within a labyrinth of online intrigue.
