Catfish documents odd Facebook friendship on film

An unlikely online friendship with an unexpected turn is the subject of a documentary filmed by a group of friends, showing at the London Film Festival.

Catfish follows the relationship between Nev Schulman and a woman he meets through Facebook.

Caught on film by director Henry Joost, it progresses from initial contact to phone conversations and an eventual - unannounced - trip to Michigan to find out if Nev's new friend is what she seems.
