From faked identities to art forgeries and state lies, the film series delves into themes from the exhibition, through a variety of genres, periods and countries. The diverse programme explores how cinema questions and plays with truth and authenticity, deception and manipulation.

Each film will be contextualised and commented on by film curator Anke Brouwers, who will highlight the significance of the film in cinematographic history and connect it to the exhibition. Anke will invite a special guest to each screening for a discussion that will provide insights into the making of the movie and its significance to the issue of fakes and forgeries.

All movies are broadcast in their original language with English subtitles.
