Age of DistortionJuly 23, 2019
Can we assert that this age has created a new generation of destructive addicted people?
The idea that technology has exceedingly improved our lives is unquestionable, together with the fact that it has lead us towards self-isolation and despair. The satisfaction continues to be shared while we remain emotionally locked in ourselves in this trade of the so-called artificial TRUTH, where experiences with the rest of the world happen through selfish encounters with the unknown. As we dwell on gaming culture, questions arise: is this practice a threat or is it a digital culture indeed?
The Age of Distortion program tackles some of the above-mentioned questions, by reflecting the disturbing reality a part of our society is facing through unconscious habits as well as addressing the personal isolation of mankind and what arises from it. The program features 11 short films of various genres of documentaries, fictions, animations and music videos that will appear in two screening slots of DokuFest 2019.
