About this submission
I made this film because I wanted to talk about how the technology companies we trust with our data can misuse it. Social media has become a core part of many people’s lives, but technology companies are not given the same kinds of responsibility for the negative impacts their apps can have on users. Usually, when people find out about the misuse of their data, we get upset momentarily but move on rather quickly. The addictive nature of social media isn’t new. But, as someone whose mental health was put at risk, I wanted to tell a story about accountability.
