We may be obsessed with authenticity, but in the natural world and human society, faking and mimicking can be highly effective strategies for success.
Curated in response to the Science Gallery at Trinity College Dublin’s current free exhibition FAKE, which runs throughout May, the films in this season explore how filmmakers have engaged with issues around copying and fakery.
From the fascinating Tim’s Vermeer, which ponders the value of replicating the old masters, to Catfish, the shocking documentary that coined the term, the films in the season shed light on our preconceptions of authenticity.
