About this Event

Directed by Scilla Andreen

Documentary Feature / USA / 49 min

Strand: Politico

Review:

Esteemed psychologist Dr. Joe Dilley described LIKE with bold words: “Quite simply, it’s the most important film I’ve ever seen.” And it’s clear where he’s coming from. LIKE is a close analysis of social media as it appears in our lives, one that minimises (though does not ignore) its technical nature to focus on its social impact and effects, especially on children. This is not a heady documentary on the power or evil of social media, but a direct, practical instruction on its effects and how these might be mitigated. This is not moral panic, but tangible filmmaking.

The film is produced and directed by Scilla Andreen, a proven talent in the industry. As well as being an award-winning producer of film and television, she is an Emmy-nominated costume designer, and a popular speaker at Cannes, SXSW, and Women in Film. She is also a co-founder of IndieFlix, a production company and streaming platform designed for films that have a social impact. And LIKE is certainly that. Andreen is changing the world through film and LIKE is an essential, accessible step in that journey. / Reviewed by Milo Garner
