As part of the Semester of the Essay Film, The UMD International Film Series presents Orson Welles's F for Fake (1973), an oft-cited example of the essay film form. Ostensibly a documentary about the art forger Elmyr de Hory, Welles investigates larger assumptions about authorship, fabrication, and expectation in an anecdotal, almost conversational, mode.

Selected and introduced by English Graduate Student Paul Cote.
