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. More than just another anthology or portmanteau film, this is a much cleverer proposition, 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 (Selfie is brought to you exclusively, and ironically, by one of the UK’s first online film festivals!).
