SF IndieFest—LOL


Director: Joe Swanberg (USA 2006)
Runtime: 81 minutes

Alex, Tim, and Chris view the women in their lives through a computer screen or the lens of a camera-phone, struggling to balance their online fantasies and addictions with the demands of real life. Featuring a nonprofessional cast, video contributions from people all over the world, and music by lead Kevin Bewersdorf, “LOL” shows how the latest tools of communication can either help us click or turn us off.

Director’s note:
“We started with nothing but the theme of relationships and technology, and over the course of 6 months we discovered a film much funnier, sadder, and more relevant that I ever could have hoped for.” — Joe Swanberg

SF IndieFest note:
Joe Swanberg visited us last year with his erotic feature debut “Kissing on the Mouth.” He’s just finished acting in “Quiet City”(Dir. Aaron Katz, whose “Dance Party, USA” is in this festival); his third feature “Hannah Takes the Stairs” features IndieFest fave Andrew Bujalski (“Funny Ha Ha,” “Mutual Admiration”); his short film “Thanks for the ADD” appears in Issue 2 of San Francisco’s Wholphin video magazine, and the entire first season of his web-show “Young American Bodies” is on www.Nervevideo.com, with Season 2 coming soon. Now, someone should coin a label for this prolific new wave of post-cinematic video/web/film artists.

Darius’s notes:
Coming soon…
