Short Film Program: Sentimental Data

Friday 04.11, 16:30 – 17:30

Technology has grown into a channel for the expression of our emotions, particularly so in term of love and our need to be connected through different online communities.

We have developed emotional relationships with our devices sometimes to the demise of what surrounds us in the immediacy of the Now.

Our phones, computers and tablets have become mediators between our emotions and their receivers, transforming emotions into data inscriptions.

This short film program explores what unfolds when we rely on an app’s algorithms to find a potential date, how is it to grieve in the digital age, and how to connect and disconnect with someone we never met - how augmented reality can enhance our life, or be a tool for manipulation, and, measured neurochemically, what love looks like when we are urged to love as hard as we can.
