Fyre Fraud is an American documentary film directed by Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason that premiered on January 14, 2019, on Hulu. Fyre Fraud is described in its press release as a “true-crime comedy bolstered by a cast of whistleblowers, victims, and insiders going beyond the spectacle to uncover the power of FOMO and an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and a lack of accountability in the digital age.
I found Fyre Fraud incredibly interesting. I remember when this actually happened and seeing an inside look and behind the scenes of setting this up is spectacular. Interviews with the people involved in the Fyre Festival and people that attended the festival is great too. The part that really blows my mind about the situation is that everyone KNEW that they were either committing a massive con, or knew that, at the very least, the festival was going to SUCK.
I’ve been watching a lot of documentaries lately, and they’re rather hard to actually review. If you take anything from this, just take that you should watch this. Its interesting, informative, and recent enough that you’ll probably remember a lot of what they’re talking about.
