THIS WORLD IS
THIS WORLD IS is a performative reflection of the concept of Wanderlust; the human connection; social media vs the spectacle, and perspective through travel. Drawing inspiration from Kevin Macdonald’s Life in a Day (2011), this essay film uses crowdsourced videos and interviews, alongside vlog-style reflections to explore a variety of topics – How travel can change perspective; whether wanderlust can be achieved closer to home, and how social media and modern technologies affect both human connection and our perception of global issues. Deliberately switching between the mundane and cinematic in both content and form, this film aims to provide an ‘antidote’ to the spectacle, and provoke self-awareness in relation to global community.
