Sleeping with Siri, USA- WORLD PREMIERE (28 mins)
Directed by Marty Riemer
Cast: Michael Stusser
Inspired by a high school's "Digital Blackout" campaign, where students went without social networks, e-mail or texting for an entire week, journalist Michael Stusser explores both sides of the technological divide in his own insane way. Jumping first into the digital madness, the reporter explores every single technological opportunity available, 24/7 for a week (the Techno-Gorge), Four-squaring, Skyping, Tweeting and Liking everything in sight. He then drops out entirely for a second week, with no computer, e-mail or social nets, availing himself with the now-lost icons of a by-gone era, including phone booths, libraries, paper maps and letter writing. Juxtaposing the feast or famine of our hyper-linked society, the documentary highlights the very sharp contrasts between our technologically plugged in lives and living in the present moment.
