More about the series:
Now, no one has any doubt, the digital world, the cellular, the new media and the online media that burst into our lives in a storm of ringing, buzzing and constant updates shook us and left us unable to imagine ourselves in the old format. Always available, dependent on technology taps, navigation software, and instant messages, the generation born with a touchscreen tries to examine and understand in depth the new concepts embedded in the word “relationships.” Through a series of human stories wondering the series “Digital Relations” Can we really meet in the virtual world? What is the cost of our dependence on devices? And what value does the freedom have to turn off the mobile at the touch of a button. “The films were directed by young filmmakers, both BA and MA students in the Film and Television Department at Tel Aviv University, and present quality documentary work, honest and sensitive through personal and innovative voices.
