Strangers

The story of those who take the web’s darker realms into their own hands. About the people who break into the social web, the more intimate Internet, the creeper of cyberspace, the social-engineering, the online street crawling voyeur, and the stalkers. It’s about people whose actions are the effects of their online realities. Those who fall victim to their cyberzines, look for approval and find it in all the wrong places. There’s a whole subculture of folks who are playing in the dark and the music video for Banxxxys song "Strangers" takes a look into the shadows of cyberspace seeping into reality. A story of those whose realities are being influenced by their actions in the digital world.

The movie has been made with the intent of bringing a cinematic perspective to the dark side of the Internet. The short film was created and produced by Simon Spieske, German Filmmaker and Art Director at FLAREMEDIA.
