Canadá, 2013
Director: Dominic Gagnon

A film built on lies, assuming the end of the world on 21 December 2012 as the greatest of them. Conquering fear by manufacturing scares: that’s what the teens in Hoax Canular do with their webcams, unleashing rumours of the end of the world. This work with amateur online videos is a profound reflection on how young people are appropriating the angst being stoked by the media. The material of Hoax Canular comes mostly from 70 hours of videos recorded simultaneously on a single night – the night before “the great apocalypse”.(Paolo Moretti)
