The Fyre Festival was the defining scam of the millennial generation, at the nexus of social media influence, late-stage capitalism, and morality in the post-truth era. Marketing for the 2017 music event went viral with the help of rapper Ja Rule, instagram stars, and models but turned epic fail after stranding thousands in the Bahamas.

“FYRE FRAUD is more than the story of a failed music festival in the Bahamas – this dark comedy is a cautionary tale for a generation.” Directors Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason said in a statement. “Our aim was to set the stage for a strange journey into the moral abyss of our digital age, going beyond the meme to show an ecosystem of enablers, driven by profit and willing to look the other way, for their own gain.”

Fyre Fraud will be featuring interviews from whistleblowers, victims, insiders and an exclusive interview with the festival’s event organizer Billy McFarland, who is now convicted after pleading guilty to two counts of wire fraud. The film will be 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.

“Billy McFarland offers us a window into the mind of a con artist, the insidious charm of the fraudster and how they can capture our imaginations, our investment, and our votes in the age of Trump. McFarland’s staggering ambition metastasized in a petri dish of late-stage capitalism, corporate greed, and predatory branding, all weaponized by our fear of missing out.”

The film is co-directed by Emmy-nominated and Peabody award winners Jenner Furst and Julia Willoughby Nason. Furst and Nason have also served as executive producers along with Michael Gasparro, The Cinemar, MIC and Billboard.
