Experimental Film / 19min / 2020 / D: Franziska Schönenberger, Jayakrishnan Subramanian / P: Family Business Film
A lonely young woman escapes the reality of her everyday-life somewhere in India by making videos with an interactive
app. As she recieves more and more attention from her virtual audience and especially from one male user, her husband
who works abroad gets in a furious rage - with terrible consequences.
"Directors Franziska Schönenberger and Jayakrishnan Subramanian draw a picture of indian traditional life, social networks and
new media's impact on Indian society - especially on young Indian people's lifes. The whole story is told through the perspective
of a mobile phone and the protagonists interaction with different apps. The mobile's screen grows into a place of longing,
freedom from reality and self-expression.
A strong plea for breaking up old structures and the empowerment of women."
