Would you watch a film that’s set entirely on someone’s computer screen? As in the person’s Skype, Facebook, iPhone, and Chatroulette conversations?
It sounds unbearable, but “Noah” is a Canadian short film that quickly pulls you into the multitasked, uberdistracted insanity that is modern relationships.
Part of the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, the 17-minute portrayal of teenager Noah Lennox’s unraveling love life feels eerily familiar, as well as a sign of things to come. The video has garnered nearly 1 million views since it was posted to YouTube on September 9.
“Noah” is directed by Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg, Ryerson University film grads. It begins on Noah’s iMac but quickly moves to his iPhone screen and other platforms as he chats with his girlfriend Amy.
