Selfie Various. 2020. France. 1hr 48mins
Fri 26 March @ 8:00 am - Sun 23 May @ 5:00 pm
An exclusive Zoom interview with actress Fanny Sidney will be available to help promote alongside this title.
Like a whole series of Black Mirror in one film, these six darkly humorous, interlinking stories explore our increasing dependence upon digital media. Cyberstalking, social media, online shopping, swipe dating, vlogging – all come under its insightful gaze. Starring Fanny Sidney from Netflix hit Call My Agent, Selfie is much cleverer proposition than most anthology or portmanteau films, with characters and plot lines recurring throughout the different stories. As the web connections grow, the film builds towards a grande finale set at a wedding on an island with no mobile phone signal – until someone finds one, leading to an hilarious showdown. Given our increased reliance on technology to stay connected under the current Covid-19 lockdown, this is a wry commentary on the tyranny of internet connections and screens.
“If one image here doesn’t tickle you, it’s easy enough to swipe to the next” – Variety
