#21xoxo is a surreal and humorous depiction of the 21st century cyber-love and social media craze. The story revolves around a girl and her nihilist adventures in a parallel digital universe interlaced with speed dating, hipster culture, and post-net attitudes. We encounter colourful and bizarre imaginary filled with absurd, surreal and metamorphic scenes with a touch of 90s nostalgia. The mixed-media use of live-action and animation brings forth various connotations and translates modern video clutter involving technological gadgets into the language of animation.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
