A surreal film explores loneliness through YouTube culture Video Description

Rob Mockler, the film’s writer, directer, and editor, describes the film’s conception as part of a knee-jerk reaction to social media. “I thought it was a real absurd step for humanity, and I thought it was kind of scary in some ways,” he says. It made him seek validation in something as simple as posting a photo online — and then doubt himself if people didn’t like it. “[Social media] changed how I feel we look at ourselves. We're now sort of crafting, we're curating memories, we're crafting our identities like never before. There's this real-time sort of authorship of who we are as people.”
