A woman (Olivia Lonsdale) roams through the communist past of former Yugoslavia. Here, she develops an aversion to the future, where smartphones have not liberated but possessed us. Why can we no longer see the bigger picture? Incorporating analyses by political scientists Alex Williams and Nick Srnicek, this remarkable essay drenches the viewer with a torrent of associative, poetic and confrontational images, to demonstrate how technology plays a role in our view on empathy, politics and solidarity.
