Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman run a commercial production company. The friends had a habit of following and filming just about everything, including Ariel’s brother Nev, a dance photographer. When Nev struck up an online friendship with a young artist, Henry and Ariel thought the footage might yield a documentary about artistic collaboration. When the artist’s beautiful older sister began an online romance with Nev, the film took a very different turn. Larry Mantle talks with the directors of the documentary they swear is true, Catfish.

Nev Schulman will answer question after selected screenings of Catfish at ArcLight Cinemas today, October 1, in Hollywood and tomorrow, October 2, in Sherman Oaks. Visit ArcLight Cinemas for tickets and showtimes.
