Video shows a father running away from an avalanche, leaving his wife and children.
Social media users recently widely shared a video that purportedly shows a father escaping an avalanche, leaving his wife and children behind.
Misbar investigated the circulating claim and found it to be misleading.
After conducting a thorough reverse image search, Misbar's team found that the circulating video is a scene from the movie "Force Majeure.” The video was posted on YouTube back in 2014.
Misbar’s team also found a film review of “Force Majeure” by The Guardian that featured an image from the circulating video.
The film “Force Majeure” is a 2014 black comedy film written and directed by the Swedish filmmaker Ruben Östlund.
The film is a comedic psychodrama about a father’s struggle to regain his position as the family’s patriarch after abandoning his family during an avalanche.
