‘A Social Life’ is a short film about a career-driven woman named Meredith who’s living the life she’s always dreamed of … online. Meredith is unconsciously creating her ‘image’ with her social media ‘friends’. But she awakes one day to realise that.
We live in a switched-on world in which it’s almost unthinkable to be without social media for so much as a day. According to Statista, a company specialising in market and consumer data, around 30 million South Africans were on social networking sites in 2019. What’s more, this number is set to grow to close to 50 million by 2026!
