Call of Comfort

Brenda Lien

Short film

»Please agree to the terms and conditions to be a part of the Community,« says the Big Data crystal ball as it bathes you in positive affirmations and hyper-personalized ads, »All for your own benefit, of course.« You are a neverending energy source. Feel your body becoming heavy and relaxed, and just say, »Yes!« An experimental film about current technology seducing us to sacrifice our privacy, in hope of an optimised life.
