Story

Perhaps it is time to let go of the illusion of certainty about where the screen ends and the outside world begins. A lonely restaurant patron, surrounded by people typing away on their laptops. Passengers in the metro, fixated on their smartphones. A pianist playing a virtual instrument. Through a series of eminently relatable everyday scenes, animator Jola Bańkowska comments on how our lives are shaped by digital technology.
