Fact or Fiction?
A True Story. Filled with Lies.
Clark Rockefeller is a real life conman of the highest order, now serving a near-life sentence in a California State prison. And iconic musician and provocateur Torquil Campbell wants to try him on for size. What does it mean for an excellent fabulator to embody an excellent fabulator? And in the end, does an intricate con differ that much from a successful work of art? Torquil’s dogged investigation and impersonation challenges us to find the truth in True Crime and confront our cultural addiction to a good story. True Crime is a mind-twisting encounter with an artist obsessed with how we all fake it, one way or another.
“…a meta-narrative about the constructed nature of identity, extreme vanity, narcissism and the power of alternative facts.” – NOW
