Details About the Film

Doors & Music at 6:30pm; Film start at 7pm. 

When Taylor, a recent engineering graduate, received a message linking to a porn site, she was shocked to find explicit videos featuring her face and her full name. Except the person in the videos was not actually her, somebody had edited her face onto the pornographic videos using deepfake technology and included personal details such as her hometown and school. When she discovered another woman from her school had also been targeted, they team up to find out the truth after repeated failures to get help from the police. Weaving deepfake technology into their own filmmaking, co directors Sophie Compton and Reubyn Hamlyn have crafted a compelling and shocking reflection on the perfect storm of AI technology and toxic masculinity internet culture. The story of these two women unfolds like a stranger than fiction true crime investigation as they dive into the dark online world of deepfakes in search of justice.

In Fest fashion, audiences will be treated to a pre-film concert. This year we welcome Liv Burney to the stage. Having spent the last half decade performing with her acclaimed family band, Liv Burney has stepped out as a singular, confident voice in our local music pool. Deftly flipping between gentle melodies and impassioned deliveries, Burney’s hybrid approach to indie rock, folk and country harkens to classic sounds beyond her years.

This annual community screening is presented by True/False Film Fest and the University of Missouri’s Jonathan B. Murray Center for Documentary Journalism to spotlight essential new nonfiction. This screening will be a sneak preview ahead of the film's release.

Film Reviews

"A bone chilling look into the world of deepfakes, Sophie Compton and Reuben Hamlyn’s Another Body is a cautionary call to action and true crime thriller all rolled into one" - Andrew Parker, The Gate
