The documentary series, ARNAQUES, closely examines hoaxes from around the world, taking them apart piece-by-piece while also investigating the people who perpetrate these hoaxes. From the Virgin in Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac who cries tears of blood to the alleged discovery of the missing link, there’s no limit to what people are willing to believe. Because without a deep desire to believe, there wouldn’t be any hoaxes. In contrast to other kinds of fraud, hoaxes are based on illusion and mystery, they are like a magician’s sleight-of-hand combined with an elaborate, well-thought-out story. And that is why they fascinate us.
