VIRTUAL INTIMACY

FILM

Modern life is dictated by technology, this virtual world lifestyle extends into the most intimate aspects of our lives, which we are currently embracing: Online Dating. Today’s modern lovers simply create a profile on a myriad of sites, sit back, and wait for the offers to roll in. This documentary illustrates the digital mating game with humor and irony. The film uses vintage archive interwoven with the reflections of contemporary subjects who contend with the stark realities of this virtual world ritual that extends into the most intimate aspects of our lives. VIRTUAL INTIMACY cautiously considers the intersection of romance and technology with observations on the delusional aspects of our attempts to find love, showing that romance ends the way it always has- with one walking away whistling and one left crying.
