July 2012: Catfish – Think before you click

Sunday 1st July, 7-10pm OARC, East Oxford Community Centre £3 recommended donation

Catfish is a true story for the digital age. A documentary directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, it follows Ariel’s brother Nev as he builds a romantic relationship over the social networking site Facebook.  Reminding us of the old adage that in cyberspace no one knows you’re a dog, the twists and turns in this film are nail-bitingly surprising!

Doors open at 7PM and as usual we’ll be showing a selection of media activist and citizen journalist produced film shorts until 7.30pm.

Catfish showing starts at 7.30PM sharp after which we shall table a discussion on the various themes raised in the film.

Evening finishes at 10PM, at which juncture we may ajourn to a local ale house for continued discussion and refreshment.

OARC, East Oxford Community Centre, Princes Street, Oxford, OX4 1DD
