The Girl of 672K

15-year-old Annegien has more followers on social media than most YouTube stars can dream of, and on Instagram she shares her beautiful art photographs with nearly 700,000 followers. She is also approached by agents who want to make her rich - and turn her into a star. But Annegien is far more keen to promote her talents than herself. At CPH:DOX, students can meet Annegien on her home turf, namely in a workshop where she demonstrates her skills directly from her smartphone.

Blessings

Just like most other teenagers in the 21st century, the 16-year-old Finnish Julia is a major consumer of social media. And like for many others, Julia's telephone is an important and major part of her life, from the moment she wakes up until the moment she goes to bed. This short documentary follows Julia's completely normal everyday life, and observes how she uses social media during the day – while Julia's display is being mirrored on the screen we are watching the film on – and how it affects her life. 'Blessings' shows a glimpse of the reality of a 16-year-old girl in a modern, digital world, where the time she spends with her friends is spent taking pictures and selfies, on uploading them onto social media, and on closely monitoring the ensuing comments and likes. During CPH:DOX we will show 'Blessings' as an introductory film before the Dutch documentary 'The Girl of 672K'.
