Disconnection - a short film written, directed and produced by Shredy Jabarin in 2014
Created with my acting students who finished the year acting course.
It's about young people who long for connection, but don’t succeed to make it. They try to achieve it through virtual life, a thing that creates more loneliness and more disconnection. That leads the three characters to create a world where they can’t make their way to success unless they connect to the “right” people. So they live their lives looking for “connections”, while the "right" connections became so “right” only because of being gatekeepers of family members or a gatekeepers. So despite the emptiness and the lack of meaning, they have to keep pretending to be qualified and competent, basically because of Ego motives.
