Loch Ness: Created a Monster
The darkly comic story of the Nessie hunters who camped out on the shores of Loch Ness throughout the 1970s and 1980s. Featuring an international cast of dedicated scientists and extraordinary eccentrics who chased, but never found, the dinosaur-like creature who may live in the depths of the loch. The film shows how the absence of concrete evidence and the allure of fame gradually tainted the once-serene Loch with frustration, egos, and broken dreams.
“Nessie has evolved into a pop culture phenomenon,” said Suzanne Nodale, head of Cercamon Docs. “This documentary serves as a timely reminder of the potential consequences of unchecked misinformation in an era marked by fake news and widespread distrust in the media.”
“Loch Ness: They Created a Monster is jam packed with quirky, eccentric characters and director John MacLaverty has a real talent for finding the comedy in their desperate quest,” added Producer, John Archer.
