Platform is a short film about the phenomenological experience of living in the 21st century. Modern society is fissured, between the ‘real’ and the ‘virtual’, between the Left and the Right, between the haves and the have nots, etc. If there is a common thread running through our social fabric, it is that binary and contradictory perspectives exist for every possible object or subject. But this cleavage in our sense of reality has resulted in an increasingly apathetic populace — even towards the most vile acts of violence. Platform explores this loss of affect through a depiction of violent action, casually observed by 8 people, that leads to nothing: an allegorical illumination of modern observer culture.”
