Experimental-Documentary, 6 min

INSTALIFE is an experimental-documentary-film based on photos, which were either directly taken from a social media platform or recreated by actors according to the original photos. It brings the photos in a new rhythmic order and combines them with a voice-over reading the original hashtags found on this platform.
