June Documentary Spotlight: Dominic H. White's DSKNECTD

Submitted by Spirit of the Thing on June 6, 2014 - 1:10pm


As I type this now on my laptop, my iPhone by my side, it's not hard to understand why a film like DSKNECTD was made. Go to a bar, a college campus, a high school lunch and even a middle school basketball game and you'll notice one thing - a large portion of people in each of these scenarios have their faces buried in their phones - texting, playing stupid ass games like Candy Crush, porn, watching the latest viral video on YouTube or any number of other (mostly stupid) things. Technological advance and access has hit society like a tsumani and engulfed the better part of the world with quick easy access to information.

What DSKNECTD delves into is the effects this access to technology and its addictive qualities has on the brain, social behaviors as well as differentiating characteristics of the generations employing its use. This film is mostly successful in laying out the issues - creation of isolated subgroups of society, increased risky sexual behavior because of sexting and earlier access to hardcore pornography, inability to create meaningful relationships with people in the real world as opposed to the virtual world, etc.

At 29, the most long-term relationship Sasha (Leighton Meester) and Paige (Gillian Jacobs) have ever been in is with each other, using their co-dependent friendship as an excuse not to venture out into the dating world alone. But when Paige meets nerdy Tim (Adam Brody) and starts to get serious for the first time, the nature of their friendship begins to shift. Fearing she’s being cast aside, Sasha tries to keep their relationship the same, but does growing up also mean growing apart?

How do we navigate relationships in an age of relentless technology? We are more likely to shoot someone a text than call them. Writing letters is a thing of the past. When does technology hinder our ability to connect on a human level? Have we gone too far, already?
