A satirical look at the negative effects of social media on young people by London-based directors Will & Carly (previously featured here). The disturbing trend to go under the knife to make flawless filtered selfies a reality has actually been labelled as a new mental illness called “Snapchat Dysmorphia.” FILTERFACE: Double Tap To Like was shot in an ex-mental health institute in North London and explores themes of self-obsession and addiction to perfection through a choreographed performance by Isabella Mahmoud and assistant choreographer Ellie Gordon. As Will & Carly state: “We really wanted to ring an alarm bell with this film and draw attention to the bizarre cultural obsession with AR filters that is hurting our women and girls in more ways than one.”
