“A new documentary about Twitter could change the film industry forever“ Kate Bussmann, Sunday Times – 12th February. Read the full article.
Twittamentary is a documentary about the everyday people who use Twitter; from a travel journalist turned “Twilebrity” to a porn star who uses Twitter to stay in touch with her fans; from a stock trader who tweets from the world’s largest exchange to a homeless woman who uses Twitter to find a place to live. The movie is always shown in a dual screen mode, with a live twitter wall, thus creating a unique cinematic experience where the audience can interact with the cast and crew, in real-time, while watching the movie.Bemused by the hoopla surrounding Twitter, the filmmaker Tan Siok Siok set out on a quest to uncover why the micro blogging platform has such die hard fans. She put the prowess of Twitter to the test by leveraging it to crowd source stories before setting out on a whirlwind tour across the United States to discover and document the effects of Twitter.The result is a road movie that mirrors the filmmaker’s own quest to capture the zeitgeist of Twitter and her exploration of technology as the means of our connection and alienation.
Filmmaker Tan Siok Siok @sioksiok will open the screening live fom Beijing and share her insights on the making of the film.
We have a limited number of tickets for the screening and of course the night wouldn’t be the same without popcorn!
