Director Statement

Look around you. How many people can you see, heads buried in their phones? You're probably one of them right now, reading this statement.

Technology is our new age solution of seeking, securing and maintaining connections...and yet...never before have we felt so disconnected.

Distract-MEME is a quirky micro-film that points a finger at the ridiculousness of this generations phone addiction we're ALL guilty of. Cheekily probing the audience to, perhaps, re-evaluate their priorities.
