Remediating the Hoax, Gillian Whitlock , single work criticism
'In 2004 Norma Khouri's bestselling story of honour killing, Forbidden Love (2003), was revealed to be a hoax. Unexpectedly, in the aftermath of the hoax the fate of Khouri and her book became the subject of a major feminist documentary film by Anna Broinowski, Forbidden Lie$ (2007). The film offers a rigorous consideration of the hoax and its importance in debates about the politics and ethics of transnational and cross-cultural feminist engagements with narratives of distant suffering now. The film reincarnates the hoaxer into a renewed vivid presence, that opens possibilities for thinking about (and with) the hoax and, at the same time, raises questions about the ethics of feminist campaigns against honour killing.'
