      Film series: Flim-flam redux

      Cinema of fakes, cons, doubles

      After a long hiatus, we’re thrilled to resume film screenings with Flim-flam redux, a series which was interrupted in March due to COVID-19.

      Doppelgangers, false identities and body swaps: each generation of filmmakers adapts these tropes to the anxieties of its era. This season proposes that our current fascination with the double pivots on questions of authenticity and deception. We’re held rapt by the rise and fall of Instagram fraudsters, sham startups and deep fakes. In the space between the original and its counterfeit lurks the con.

      In dialogue with the exhibition Shadow catchers, this series draws together compelling stories of doubles and fabricated realities. Scams exist on a spectrum from small-time rackets to structural inequalities that hide in plain sight. Featuring films by Elaine May, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Mohsen Makhmalbaf, Cheryl Dunye and more, Flim-flam redux explores a collective vulnerability to lies that sound like truth.

      Cost: Free
